The Magician's Elephant by Kate DiCamillo
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Another awesome tale from the fabulous Kate DiCamillo! I had great difficulty putting this down even for small bits of time.
This is a beautiful tale of a young orphan boy hoping, wishing and searching for the long-lost sister that he has always been told is dead. It is also the tale of a lost elephant, a bewildered magician, and the connection between all of the characters.
Themes include honesty, following your heart and never being defeated (no matter how difficult your situation).
The Magician's Elephant would be an excellent read aloud for upper elementary students!
Highly Recommended - This is a MUST READ!
