See below for English description.

Pierre-Auguste Duchêne sait que le diseur de bonne aventure dit vrai : sa soeur est bel et bien en vie et il lui suffit de suivre l'éléphant pour la retrouver. Invraisemblable? Pas pour ce jeune garçon habité par l'espoir... Et voilà que justement, un éléphant est récemment apparu à Baltese suite à la fausse manoeuvre d'un magicien. L'animal serait-il au centre d'une série d'événements aussi improbables qu'extraordinaires?

When a fortuneteller's tent appears in the market square of the city of Baltese, orphan Peter Augustus Duchene knows the questions that he needs to ask: Does his sister still live? And if so, how can he find her?

The fortuneteller's mysterious answer (an elephant! An elephant will lead him there!) sets off a chain of events so remarkable, so impossible, that you will hardly dare to believe it's true.

With atmospheric illustrations by fine artist Yoko Tanaka, here is a dreamlike and captivating tale that could only be narrated by Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo. In this timeless fable, she evokes the largest of themes-hope and belonging, desire and compassion-with the lightness of a magician's touch.
