I love true animal stories and this one came highly recommended by one of my reading friends. I know I would have enjoyed it much more if I could have read it without distractions but quiet time is impossible to come by in my house.

This story is supposedly a true one about an elephant and a boy who grow up together but some of the adventures truly require a big gulp of suspension of disbelief. I'm thinking the author exaggerated a wee bit to embellish his story but maybe that's just me . . . Despite that, it's a very heartwarming tale about the bond that can develop between man and elephant. Lovely stuff.
