Ble strength and a very curious trunk And when Tua meets Pohn Pohn it's clear this elephant needs her help Together the unusual team sets off on a remarkable journey to escape from Pohn Pohn's vile captors From the bustling night. I loved this book It is such a sweet story and it gives an amazing insight into both the Thai culture and the amazing things that a child’s courage can accomplish The writing is mostly simple and smooth for the intended age group of young adults The only difficult point may be the occasional greetings in Thai The story is entertaining and flows uickly from one major event to the next The true gem of this book however is in the lesson that it teaches to young readers no one should be abused and love should be shared freely and fearlessly
