The Magician's Elephant

author: Kate DiCamillo
illustrator: Yoko Tanaka

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 itís 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 ó hope and belonging, desire and compassion ó with the lightness of a magicianís touch.
With dreamlike illustrations and a new cover by Yoko Tanaka.

A classic tale by Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo, America's beloved storyteller
