An Elephant in the Garden is a novel written by Michel Morpurgo which I read in term 2 and finished yesterday. I really enjoyed the book it’s full of war, adventure and heart warming moments. Its one of those books I would recommend to just about any and everyone. The story is about a German family who”s father went away to war in WW2 and the family’s journey to the Americans after escaping the bombing of Dresden with a young baby elephant called Marlene and finding there father. My favorite character is Marlene because she brings a sense of happiness where ever she goes.
Here is the cover of the book. I have also read some other books by Michel Morpurgo called Shadow and Escape from Shangri- La.
