When Erica Perkins wakes up on the morning of her tenth birthday, the last thing she expects is to find a very confused elephant sitting on her doorstep. So begins an unlikely friendship.
But can a small girl and a rather large elephant learn to live together in a tiny terraced house?
And when the dastardly owner of the local zoo plots to steal the elephant, will Erica be able to outsmart him?
Illustrated with heartwarming and engaging line drawings. Sylvia’s writing has a wonderfully classic feel while the offbeat humour makes it contemporary and fresh.
