Small as an elephant
When eleven-year-old Jack crawls out of his pup tent on the first morning of his camping trip with his mom in Acadia National Park, he notices right away that something isn't right. Where is his mom's tent, and their rental car? And where is his mom? Any other kid might panic, might even go to the police. But Jack isn't like other kids. And his mom isn't like other moms.
Jack sets out alone on a quest to find his mom. Then, just to get back home. Along the way he finds help in unexpecxted places. Small as an elephant is a beautifully written story of love, courage and bravery. KR
