One day a fourteen year old boy named Nick lived in London with his mom. There was a war going on and London was getting bombed at the time. One of the bombs landed on Nick’s apartment while Nick's mom was at work. His mom decided that Nick should live with his father in Burma where it was safe. The next morning a girl named Mya and her brother Indaw showed up at Nick's house to take him to Burma. When he arrived at his father's house in Burma he was disappointed that his father was not there. Before Nick went to bed his father finally came home and gave Nick a present. The next day Nick was walking around the Elephant Village. Suddenly, Nick heard a metal hitting metal sound. The next thing he saw was a fourteen foot tall elephant standing in front of him. The elephant hit him in the ribs with his trunk and sent Nick soaring through the air. Read this action and adventure filled novel. Also find out what happens to Nick as he lives with his dad and the elephants.
