What Elephants Know
What Elephants Know By Eric Dinerstein
Nandu was abandoned in the jungle of the Nepalese Borderlands when he was only a young two year old boy. After living under the watch of the dhole or a wild dog, for a few years, Nandu finds his way to the king’s elephant stable where he is raised by the head of the stable, Subba-sahib, and Devi Kali, a strong, affectionate elephant. As Nandu grows up, he becomes a mahout just as the king threatens to close the elephant stable. A plan soon evolves but there is only one problem; the stable does not own a tusker that can breed the female elephants… Through ups and downs, Nandu finally sets out to find a tusker to bring back to the stable. The fate of the elephant stable rests in Nandu’s hands…will he be able to save the stable and continue his dream to become a phanit?
Nandu’s adventures are very exciting and will quickly draw readers in! Nandu’s story is amazing because he was protected by the dhole but could have easily been eaten by a tiger! This is a five star book that brings Nandu’s journey alive. Dedicated to all elephant lovers, What Elephants Know is a thrilling story and a great read!
