Publisher's Summary

It's unbelievable but true! Born on the same day in the same small, German circus town, young Bram and his elephant, Modoc, had a lifelong friendship that spanned over eight decades. But it was never easy. From the breakup of the circus to the shipwreck in the Indian Ocean that nearly cost them their lives, the bond between the boy and the elephant survived the most unimaginable trials.
This true story of their adventures together, and eventual rise to circus stardom in the Ringling Brothers Circus, will be a treasure for animal lovers everywhere.

boy and elephant's

It was too short and left me wanting more. A very intriguing story of a boy and elephant's connection. I just wish there was a better ending. An easy clean read.

Nice story; a bit fanciful

Given the title, I was expecting this story to be about Jumbo (go Tufts!). It isn't. Doesn't seem like it could possibly be a true story either, but I'm sure kids would like it nonetheless.
