'I cannot trumpet this book loudly enough. Scary, funny, romantic, heartwarming; an elephant book you won’t forget' - Michael Morpurgo

When a baby elephant is abandoned on the African savannah, a young boy named Bat takes her back to his village and cares for her. But Bat's grandmother explains that Meya cannot stay with them for ever - the call of the wild will always be sounding in her soul.

Then frightening rumours arrive at the village; rumours of kidnapping, suffering and war. Bat and his friend Muka are snatched, and catapulted into a new life of unimaginable terror. Will the bond between Bat and Meya strong enough to save them?

A thrilling, heartbreaking and beautiful novel from an exciting new voice in children's books, Rachel Campbell-Johnston.
