Many have dreamt of what it would feel like to fly like a bird or swing through the trees like a monkey. These impossible feats have sparked wild dreams and inspired human invention, but what about animals? What do you mean a seal can’t drive a motorcycle? Why can’t an octopus play with Lego on the beach? Through stories of determination and creative trickery, these animal characters go through great efforts to try and make their dreams come true.

Some people ask, “Why?”

We ask, “Why not?”

Books for Charity

All ECP books are written by students in Hong Kong with net proceeds donated to our charity partners to support the valuable work that they do in Hong Kong and worldwide.

Charity partners include Room to Read, Make-A-Wish Hong Kong, Hong Kong Dog Rescue, The Hong Kong Red Cross, Foodlink Foundation, and Vision First.

About Our Authors

Young people often struggle to be heard, but Elephant Community Press offers opportunities for students to share their ideas with friends, family and the community at large. By publishing the work of young authors, ECP aims to demonstrate that there is an audience for well-crafted and thoughtful writing, no matter how old the writers are.

Our young authors range in age from 6 to 17 and attend both local and international schools in Hong Kong. They herald from diverse backgrounds, but share with us a passion for storytelling and the belief that everyone has something worthwhile to say.

ECP has worked with students from a wide variety of schools including Canadian International, German Swiss, Kennedy, Diocesan Girls’ Junior School, St. Paul’s Co-Ed, West Island, Braemar Hill, Diocesan Boys’ School, Singapore International, French International, HKIS, Glenealy and Renaissance College.
