What if? Why not? Could it be? 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 you will hardly dare to believe its true. With atmospheric illustrations by fine artist Yoko Tanaka here is a dreamlike and captivating tale that could only be narrated by Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo. In this timeless fable she evokes the largest of themes hope and belonging desire and compassion with the lightness of a magicians touch.

I loved this book! It was strange and interesting and wonderful all at the same time, and every single word or sentance had a connection later on in the book. It never left pointless bits that are not continued. It also had a great plot, and unwraveled as the story continued, revealing different layers and twists, simular to an onion.
