about

Growing up on the Indonesian island of Sumatra with its cooling lakes and refreshing mud holes, Anju loved being an elephant. Lovingly cared for and protected by her mother and herd family, there was nowhere else Anju would rather be. That all changed when she was stolen and sold to an American circus. Anju spends decades traveling across the country, entertaining crowds but often subjected to mistreatment. After the circus, she's then moved to a small zoo for 23 years, their lone elephant. In her long years of captivity, chains and shackles were all she came to know. Anju no longer loved being an elephant.Wendy Henrichs's love of animals expresses itself in the stories she writes for children. In researching elephants, she was struck by their deep family connections and emotional needs so closely resembling those of humans. Wendy lives in Iowa City, Iowa.John Butler has illustrated more than 40 children's books, including A Mama for Owen, the true story of the African baby hippo that,separated from his mother during the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, bonded with a giant tortoise. John lives in England.
