Hi Book Buddies,
Look at the new book I chose for my book club! Last year we read TIGER RISING by Kate DiCamillo and now she has a new book called THE MAGICIAN'S ELEPHANT. I think you are really going to like this story, too.
This is the story of an orphan boy who is trying to find his sister. He asks a fortune teller to help him. Then the fortune teller sends him on a trip with the help of an elephant. This sounds like a great story full of adventure and mystery. I wonder if the little boy finds his sister.
The book also has super great illustrations by Yoko Tanaka.
Let's read the first three chapters this week. Let me know how you like the story or if you have questions along the way. I will also write back to let you know about my thinking while I'm reading. Oh, if you need a bookmark, let me know and I can mail to you one of mine.
Your Book Buddy,
