Synopsis

Mammoth Academy by Neal Layton

There comes a point in every young mammoth's life when it's time to grow up a bit and join the Mammoth Academy. Arabella loves school, but Oscar is finding it a little more difficult to get used to. With the help of Fox, Oscar sets out to prove that humans are in the valley and at the same time stumbles across more trouble than he'd thought.
