Staff Reviews


In The Magician's Elephant, Kate DiCamillo has created a modern day fairytale, complete with orphans, a magician, and a very lost elephant. Will Peter find his sister Adele? Will the magician be granted forgiveness? Will the poor elephant find its way home? DiCamillo deftly weaves together her story about lost souls in a redemptive message about the importance of hope.

— Anne, Atlanta

Description


When a fortuneteller's tent appears in the market square of the city of Baltese, orphan Peter Augustus Duchene knows the questions that he needs to ask: Does his sister still live? And if so, how can he find her?

The fortuneteller's mysterious answer (An elephant An elephant will lead him there ) sets off a chain of events so remarkable, so impossible, that Peter can hardly dare to believe it.

But it is--all of it--true.
