Pierre-Auguste Duch#65533;ne sait que le diseur de bonne aventure dit vrai : sa soeur est bel et bien en vie et il lui suffit de suivre l'#65533;l#65533;phant pour la retrouver. Invraisemblable? Pas pour ce jeune gar#65533;on habit#65533; par l'espoir... Et voil#65533; que justement, un #65533;l#65533;phant est r#65533;cemment apparu #65533; Baltese suite #65533; la fausse manoeuvre d'un magicien. L'animal serait-il au centre d'une s#65533;rie d'#65533;v#65533;nements 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.
