The World's Greatest Elephant
by Ralph Helfer

Junior Library Guild Award
Kids' Wings Award for 2008

 

The power of friendship between Bram, a young German boy, and Modoc, his elephant, form an unforgettable story of trust, love, and loyalty. Their early years and celebrated performances in circuses forge strong bonds between the boy and his elephant. But all too soon, the laughter and cheers are transformed into a nightmare of downward spiraling events: shipwreck, war, fire, separation, abuse, and despair. Will the two friends ever find each other again?

You read about Modoc in Ballet of the Elephants. Now learn about the rest of Modoc's life. This beautiful picture book with illustrations by Caldecott-winning illustrator, Ted Lewin, will be a welcome addition to every home, school, and public library!
