Publisher's Summary

When a fortuneteller’s tent appears in the market square of the city of Baltese, orphan Peter Augustus Duchene knows the questions that he needs to ask: Does his sister still live? And if so, how can he find her?
The fortuneteller’s mysterious answer (An elephant! An elephant will lead him there!) sets off a chain of events so remarkable, so impossible, that Peter can hardly dare to believe it.
But it is - all of it - true.

What a lovely story of perseverance, and belief in the impossible. Kudos to Ms. Stevenson whose artful reading added her own bit of magic as we traveled together on this delightful journey. I can still hear the fortune teller's words in my mind week's after listening. Fabulous tale, excellent reading.
