The Magician's Elephant by Kate DiCamillo

This is my first time reading a DiCamillo story.
I've heard all the rave reviews about her other books and I don't know how The Magician's Elephant stacks up against them, but I loved this book.
It was beautifully written, magically created, gorgeously realised and utterly compelling from start to finish. It is a story about hope, wonder, the unexpected and trust.

A modern classic for mature 7 + readers.

I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger commenting can be a frustrating experience for many.

Make sure you're logged into your account before writing your comment, otherwise blogger will eat it. I have occasionally found lost comments by hitting the back arrow button.

A recent discussion with blogger admin revealed that the ability to post comments "is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) 'third party cookies', in their browser and on their computer. And, have them check their script filters, too. Third party cookies filtering, in a browser setting, is the most common solution. Filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago."
I hope this helps. Using a different browser for a while was another suggestion.

If all else fails, you can contact me on my fb page or twitter.

Thanks to another increase in spam comments I have now added word verification on ALL posts.
