Reviews
Praise for The World's Loneliest Elephant:

"Beautifully told.... The illustrations--gouache and acrylic on wood--feature bands of grain below the painted surface that give a hazy beauty to the pages and a remarkable amount of texture to Kaavan's skin.... Sad, sublime, and surely something special."--Kirkus Reviews
"A simply told, true story with great child appeal."
--Booklist
"We are very happy this book will share Kaavan's story with young readers who now have the chance to learn more about this magnificent and forgiving elephant."--Saengduean "Lek" Chailert, Founder of Elephant Nature Park and Co-Founder of Cambodia Wildlife Sanctuary
"Together Fletcher and Stoop have brought a lesson home, showing the importance of individual and group action, and the true story of an elephant now living his best life on a reserve.... A great story about the world's loneliest elephant and how activism and a few dedicated people saved him."--SLJ
