Loved this story but as more and more disasters occurred we realized the story couldn't be true. That was disappointing but the story was inspirational and beautiful anyway

Many of our book club members enjoyed reading this book but were so disappointed to find out it isn't true that they couldn't even rate it. They felt cheated. It is like an adventure story with a boy and elephant who were both born on the same day to a circus family. They make their way to America with a sea mishap and time working in Burma on a teak plantation. It is very touching as trainer and elephant have a relationship and are parted then reunited. If you know it is fiction before you read it, you will enjoy it more.
