When Peter Augustus entered the fortuneteller’s tent, he was looking for an answer – was his sister alive?  What the fortuneteller told him did not make sense because she told him to follow the elephant and he would find her.  He knew it was impossible to find an elephant where he lived…but one day there was a magician who made an elephant appear.  Did that mean she was alive or was it just coincidence?  If she was alive, how would an elephant lead her to him?  Read this book to find out!. 
Magician’s Elaphant by Kate Dicamillo is a beautiful story. Peter is an innocent, sweet boy who has grown up without love and family.  The suspense of what will happen to this boy makes this a turn pager.  Great 4th grade and older.
