Help! I'm looking for the title or author...

Of a fantasy childrenís book I had back in the 60ís when, yes, I was a child. The artwork absolutely captivated me.
I canít remember much of it but I seem to recall there were three travelers and they all had special powers. One of the travelers I remember most clearly could turn himself into an elephant. Another could turn himself into fire, and I canít remember anything about the third companion.
I recall that they journeyed a long way and came to a king who set himself to make them prove their powers so he set before them three impossible tasks; the only one I recall clearly is the man transforming himself into an elephant to drink the huge vat of wine the king put before him. I canít recall what the others did about their tasks.
Does any of this sound familiar? Iíve searched keywords like ďman changes into elephant childrenís storyĒ and gotten nowhere. Iím guessing maybe itís an adaptation of some old Persian or East Indian legend but I havenít found anything there either. Deeply appreciative in advance!
