I heard him roaring at night too, heard the hullabaloo of alarm he created in the forest wherever he went” When Will and his mother go to Indonesia, they expected a holiday. but a tidal wave ruins everything. Will escapes, on a spooked elephant, into the jungle. This is a story of adventure, bravery, survival and a bit of death 🙁 Also a mysterious tiger, a companionable elephant named Oona, quite a few orang-utans and some greedy hunters! Awesome read!!!
