Book Description

The epic and heart-rending jungle adventure from the nation's favourite storyteller, now available in paperback.

For Will and his mother, going to Indonesia isn't just a holiday. It's an escape, a new start, a chance to put things behind them - things like the death of Will's father.

And to begin with, it seems to be just what they both needed. But then Oona, the elephant Will is riding on the beach, begins acting strangely, shying away from the sea. And that's when the tsunami comes crashing in, and Oona begins to run. Except that when the tsunami is gone, Oona just keeps on running.

With nothing on his back but a shirt and nothing to sustain him but a bottle of water, Will must learn to survive deep in the jungle. Luckily, though, he's not completely alone...

He's got Oona.

From the Back Cover
"The elephant lifted her trunk and began trumpeting at the sea, tossing her head as if something out there terrified her. She swung around, and before the mahout could stop her, she was running towards the tree.

I held on for dear life, as she stampeded up the beach, and into the shadows of the jungle ..." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title."
