         Elephant Run by Roland Smith is thrilling journey from Lond

         Elephant Run by Roland Smith is thrilling journey from London, England to the jungles of Burma. The book takes
    place in World War 2. The book starts off strong when bombs drop from the night sky and destroys Nick freestone’s
    and his mother’s apartment. This scared Nick’s mom so much that she sent Nick away to love with his dad in Burma.
         Once Nick arrives, Japanese soldiers invade the Burmese elephant village. Now this has changed Nick’s life because
    now his father was taken in as a prisoner and he is also forced to work as a servant to the Japanese.  During this time, Nick
    meets a friend named Mya and they plan out a way to escape. They set off on an elephants back to try and save Nick’s father
    and Mya’s brother from the POW camp. With help from sergeant Sonji’s help Nick and Mya are able to set Indaw, Mya’s
    brother and Nick’s father free. Then on the way to Australia they are all recaptured by the Japanese soldiers. Just before they
    are all about to be executed a Hannibal attacks the Japanese soldiers.
         This story has many ups and downs for Nick. The book made me imagine on how war would have been like. It is scary to think
    about it. I felt like I was in that dangerous jungle with Nick. It felt like I was witnessing the book in real life. This book is
    a very good book and you should read it.
