I could not put the story down. Christopherson Nicholson had me from the get-go on this book. Enchanting storytelling at it's finest.

As an animal and especially elephant lover, I found this book interesting, well written and generally a good story. It wrapped up a bit quickly at the end but was very enjoyable.

I really enjoyed this touching story about a boy and the bond he develops with an elephant who he suddenly finds himself the keeper of. Great read.
