The story of Mud, her foster sister and best Friend Date Bed, and her suitor Tall Time. All elephants, the author has envisioned a society and way of thought that works as a novel. Drought has hit the African Plains, the worst in any living memory, and predation by humans has reached a new level. The elephants must find a legendary place where they will be safe.

Well written, good story, and I'm going to be thinking about this one for a while. My sister's always tells me 'good art' may not be something you like, but if it provokes a reaction, and continues to, it is 'good art.' I'm not even sure I liked this book, but I will be thinking of it, and so 'good art.'

Fly far little book!

Picked it up from the Wild Things bookbox. A story about elephants. How interesting!

And I seem to have picked up quite a few books from you, quietorchid! Good taste in books, I'd have to say.
