Product description

Shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal 2014

A boy is catapulted into the terror of serving as a child soldier in Joseph Kony’s infamous Ugandan army. Can his bond with an elephant save him? Once, long ago, when he was happy, Bat saved a baby elephant from poachers. He took her back to his African village and cared for her, until the call of the wild took her back. Now Bat needs to be saved. He’s in hell: a hell of kidnapping, suffering and war. Will Meya the elephant help to carry Bat home? A must for Morpurgo fans, this is Rachel Campbell-Johnston’s first book. But we get the definite feeling it’s far from being her last.

“Scary, funny, romantic, heartwarming.” Michael Morpurgo
