This book is based on a true story about Aaron, a boy who worked in a lodge in Africa. One day, he hears an interesting sound. He thinks it’s a hippo, but it’s actually a baby elephant that has fallen into the pool. He is scared at first because wild elephants can be dangerous creatures to humans. Aaron calls for people to help and jumps into the pool. He uses a rope to help get the baby elephant out of the pool. Once rescued, it is taken to an orphanage.

Aaron goes to visit the baby elephant, which has been named Zambezi. He is able to feed the baby when nobody else can. The keepers at the orphanage offer Aaron a job, and Aaron decides to care for elephants for the rest of his life.

This book is full of interesting facts about elephants. I feel that people should stop killing these beautiful creatures just for their tusks. Also, people should read this book to learn more about elephants and the dangers they face from humans. No creature should ever go extinct because humans want to wear pretty jewelry. This was a wonderful book.
