“That’s it. After reading this book I want to quit the human race and join the far more civilized world of Asian Elephants. A warm, inviting, well-written tale that will appeal to both young readers and the grown-ups they eventually become. Highly recommended for any parent who wants to open their children’s eyes to the wonder and warmth of other species on our planet.” (Nancy Heinzel – Amazon review)
