About this product
- DescriptionNine-year-old Tua has grown up with everything she needs in the bustling town of Chiang Mai, Thailand. Everything except a sister. But then one day in the market she makes a new friend. Not one with pigtails and a sparkling laugh, but a curious trunk and wise, old eyes. Tua has met an elephant. And this elephant needs her help. Together Tua and Pohn-Pohn go on a remarkable journey to escape from the cruel trainers who had kept the elephant in chains. From the bustling night market to the hallowed halls of a Buddhist temple and finally the sanctuary of an elephant refuge, this clever girl and her companion find exactly what they need: each other. These irresistible characters and their memorable story are brought to life by talented debut author R.P. Harris. Stunning two-colour illustrations by award-winning artist Taeeun Yoo make this gem of a book even more irresistible than the delicious treats at the night market.
- Author BiographyR.P. Harris has traveled the world with his wife, spending much time in Asia, including three months in Thailand, where this story was born. He currently lives in Shanghai, China.
