Reviews

Praise for An Elephant in the Garden

"This is a handsome, very pickupable book. Brightly and informatively jacketed, its text punctuated by lovely, fluid ink and wash illustrations by Michael Foreman, it deserves a prominent place on school library bookshelves and, if there is any justice in the world, in bookshops."
Guardian

"A thrilling and moving new novel about an extraordinary animal caught up in a very human war, for anyone who loved The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips or The Butterfly Lion!" Waterstones

"For readers aged eight and over, this captivating novel offers an insight into how Hitler came to power, refracted through the gaze of the young narrator."
Telegraph

"Following the stage success of War Horse, Michael Morpurgo returns with another gem in his animals in war series, An Elephant in the Garden."
Telegraph

Frail and in a nursing home, Lizzie recalls when she was 15 and her family, including an elephant named Marlene, escaped the devastating 1945 bombing of Dresden (Germany). Readers are spellbound as Lizzie shares her riveting recollections of the sounds, smells, and feelings of war with her nurse and her nurse's son. (c) Copyright 2012.
