This section - the first part of the story - introduces us to Maisha and her family and focuses upon the main message that she has learnt at school; she is so traumatised by the fact that her species is in danger that she needs support to communicate it to her herd. The section ends with her being teleported back to the school with the prospect of her partnering with another wild animal in order to work towards their protection. There is a lot to like about this introductory part of the story. It is well written and focuses very clearly upon the lifestyle of elephants and the danger that is facing them by man's intervention. I especially enjoyed the dedication to living creatures and the fun element of the 'Note to Big 'People'. The illustrations are delightful and match the text well. If the story continues as positively, I can envisage that this would be a good text for teachers to read aloud to their lower junior aged classes or to be used in themed assemblies on wildlife protection. I look forward to reading the rest of the book!

Young Maisha is the pride of her elephant herd. They sent her off to study about the outside world at the prestigious School of Animal Magic. She returns bearing an urgent warning. If only she can remember what it is! As she struggles to recall what she learned time may be running out for the herd -- and all elephants. Maisha the Educated Elephant combines a charming story with a compelling message about animal survival.

The illustrations are fantastic and so realistic. They jump out of the page toward you, so that you feel you are part of the story. Full review
