A thrilling and moving novel about an extraordinary animal caught up in a very human war By Michael Morpurgo.

Dresden, 1945, Elizabeth and Karli's mother works at the zoo, where her favourite animal is a young elephant named Marlene. Then the zoo director tells her that the dangerous animals, including the elephants, must be shot before the town in bombed. Unable to give Marlene up, their mother moves her into the back garden to save her - and then the bombs start to fall.

Their home is destroyed, the whole family must flee the bombed out city and through the perilous, snow covered landscape, all the while avoiding Russian troops who are drawing ever closer. It would be hard enough to do, without an elephant in tow.
