DiCamillo, Kate. The Magician's Elephant. Candlewick. Fall 2009.
So Kate DiCamillo. So wonderfully worded. So many characters. Boy is told that his sister is alive by a fortune teller. AND he will be led to her by an elephant. This is not set in an area where elephants are. Let's believe it will come true. And it does. Fast read. Kids will love it! Once again, so Kate!
