♦ This title offers a variety of topics and themes which lend themselves to programming and book discussions, including psychic phenomena, elephant behavior and conservation, the loss of a parent, and human/animal connections.
♦ This title will appeal to readers of all ages as well as fans of mysteries, animal stories, or women’s fiction.
