Read full description of the books The Elephant's Tale:Even though the fourth book in this series around Martine, a child who has special powers to heal animals, follows a similar pattern as the previous titles, it was still a real pleasure to read the book. I asked myself what attracted me still so much to these books. I guess it is mainly the many interesting facts about Southern Africa, its countries, peoples and animals, that are gently woven into each of the stories, which really keep me reading. In the first book it was all about South Africa and giraffes; the second book focused on Mozambique and dolphins; the third book on Zimbabwe and leopards; and this fourth book gave me a chance to learn about Namibia and elephants. Did you, by the way, know that elephants can swim up to 300 miles? So I very much hope that Lauren St. John will keep on writing and I will get a chance to learn more about Southern Africa from her books.
(I read the Kindle version and was impressed by the good quality of the illustrations - however, there were too many typing issues for my liking, especially the repetition of sentences or parts of sentence.)
Read information about the authorLauren St John grew up on a farm and game reserve in Africa, the inspiration for her acclaimed memoir, Rainbow's End, and her award-winning White Giraffe series for children. Dead Man's Cove, the first in her Laura Marlin mystery series, won the Blue Peter Book of the Year Award in 2011. Her bestselling One Dollar Horse trilogy for teenagers was followed by The Glory, a breathtaking YA adventure and romance about a long distance horse race across the American West. Formerly a sports and music journalist, Lauren is the author of Seve and Hardcore Troubador: the Life & Near Death of Steve Earle, a superb, gripping biography of an Americana legend. The Obituary Writer, her first adult novel, was published in 2014 and she is currently at work on her second. Both The White Giraffe and The Glory have been optioned for film.
