About the Author

Author Carole Sondrup's three children grew up with Amy. Their grandfather, Robert C. Norris - "Cowboy Bob" ~ had been asked to let Amy and her "cousins" live on some property owned by the family. Amy did grow up with the horses and cows and dogs - and a goat - who made
T- Cross Ranches their home.
Carole is a grandmother of seven and was integral in arranging for Cowboy Bob to get the training needed to be able to communicate with Amy, using a language-like system that is now standard with zoos throughout the world.
Amy played an important part in the lives of those most dear to Carole - her father and her children. "Amy brought all of us such joy that I wanted children everywhere to learn the lesson of love that we experienced through loving Amy, so I wrote Elephants Love Cowboys Too.
