Show synopsis Nine-year-old Tua has grown up with everything she needs in the bustling town of Chiang Mai, Thailand. Everything except a sister. But then one day in the market she makes a new friend. Not one with pigtails and a sparkling laugh, but a curious trunk and wise, old eyes. Tua has met an elephant. And this elephant needs her help. Together Tua and Pohn-Pohn go on a remarkable journey to escape from the cruel trainers who had kept the elephant in chains. From the bustling night market to the hallowed halls of a Buddhist temple and finally the sanctuary of an elephant refuge, this clever girl and her companion find exactly what they need: each other. These irresistible characters and their memorable story are brought to life by talented debut author R.P. Harris. Stunning two-colour illustrations by award-winning artist Taeeun Yoo make this gem of a book even more irresistible than the delicious treats at the night market.
