Welcome to our first “Monkwood Recommends…”
Over the coming weeks, staff will be sharing some of their favourite books with you in the hope that you might be inspired to give them a go!
Here is Mrs Edmondson’s recommendation…
The Girl Who Stole An Elephant
I have just started reading this with my 8 year old daughter, Phoebe, and we are thoroughly enjoying it!
Chaya, a no-nonsense, outspoken hero, leads her friends and a gorgeous elephant on a noisy, fraught, joyous adventure through the jungle where revolution is stirring and leeches lurk. Will stealing the queen’s jewels be the beginning or the end of everything for the intrepid gang?
