Reviews

"Walters' depiction of the bond that exists between Sam and her elephants is captivating. The elephants, who are presented as majestic and intelligent creatures with humanlike characteristics and rich emotional lives, will leave readers awestruck."--School Library Journal

"Cliffhangers and elephants will keep readers engaged."--Kirkus

"Walters interweaves his beautiful family story with a thorough description of elephant behavior--their intellect, compassion, and loyalty--and factual scientific possibilities of cloning an extinct species...A must-read for anyone with an interest in elephants and their welfare."--Booklist

"Walters packs in numerous details about these magnificent and highly intelligent creatures while raising complex ethical questions regarding humans' relationship with animals."--Publishers Weekly
