I read this book at school for a book report in 8th grade and i love it. THE SUMMARY doesnt fit the book at al if i would give.a summary it wwould be - Ben and is father havee been torn to peices about the painful death if bens mother leaving him to belive nothing else is good in the woulrld expect for the gentle giants that we all know as elephants. BEN doesn't want to take in any good news because he is afraid it will turn out good news could bring sorrow. bens girl cousin robin has a tightbond with ben and trys to make him laugh. Dunckon , aka Dunk, Is one of bens friends too. Dunk has a tragic life back home with the beatings his father puts on him. But dunk has always been by bens side no matter what unfourtnely though dunk is always subtracted from theequation. A great story about relizing what you can overcome and looking around at the people that care for you that you treat like a peice of crap. LOVE THOSEE WHO LOVE YOU AND EVEN THE ONES THAT DONT

I never bother to write reviews, but this book is so touching, so lovely, I had to let people know. My 9 year old loved this story and so did I. This book tells Ben's story with such grace and sensitivity. Do not miss this story, it is one book that you will not want to lend for fear you won't get it back. Just a truly beautifully told tale for young or old.
