Review: My name is K. R. and I am eleven years old. I am in the 6thgrade at Middle School in Tennessee. I have read your book, “The Night the Elephants Cried.” I enjoyed this book so much I just couldn’t put it down once I started! The bond between Noni and Jerry was a bond that can’t be topped by any relationship between a mahout and their elephant. The book was exciting and made you say “wow.” Jerry’s love for elephants makes me want to learn more about them. I can’t wait to open up another one of your books.”
