Bring Dreams to Life


Inspired by unforgettable moments from across the globe, author Julia Gray and illustrator Jennie Webber joined forces to produce The Little Lost Elephant, a book that captures one creature’s fantastic journey. “This story is about an elephant who is lost and longs to be reunited with her parents,” says Gray. “That is something that any child, no matter where they are in the world, can relate to.”

Make Lifetime Memories


“We chose two really recognizable animals as our main characters,” explains Webber. “Leo the lion actually came from The Ritz-Carlton logo.” As for Emma the elephant, adds Gray, “She’s the guest who goes into the hotel, has the wonderful hotel experiences, and hopefully leaves changed with memories she can keep forever.”
