The Girl Who Stole an Elephant (Paperback) Nizrana Farook (author)
Introducing a heroine as loveable, feisty and roguish as Robin Hood, Sri Lankan-raised author Nizrana Farook’s debut is children’s fiction at its finest. On the run from the royal palace, jewel thief and rebel Chaya – along with an intrepid gang and a purloined elephant – is driven headlong into the depths of the jungle where she must face up to revolutionary forces, untold dangers and her own misdemeanours in a battle for survival. Pitching readers into the heart of a vibrantly evoked landscape that lives and breathes from the page, The Girl Who Stole an Elephant is an adventure full of heart and courage from a dazzling new voice.
