A thoroughly humane and accessible tale of WWII survival that follows one family's trek across Germany after the fire bombing of Dresden, accompanied by a young zoo elephant. Recounted by an old lady in a nursing home to a young boy, and loosely based on real events, it is a poignant tale of the effects of war on both sides. It includes just the right amount of danger to keep it exciting, but is thought provoking enough to raise awareness of the sacrifices made and bravery exhibited in WWII.Susannah
