Synopsis

Siddharth and Rinki by Addy Farmer

Siddharth dreams of India where he used to live. He doesn't like this new place - the cold, the grey and the strange food of England. Only his toy elephant Rinki understands. When Rinki gets lost at school, Siddharth feels more lonely than ever. His classmates join him in the search for Rinki and together they go on a great adventure that bonds them as a group.

A must for our schools and homes Children's Books Ireland A heart-warming story of a little boy and his comforter -- Paula Roberts Bournemouth Daily Echo
