About the author:
Karl Cullen first volunteered at The Elephant Nature Park, Thailand in 2002, spending four months with Hope and Ging Mai, who had been recently rescued as orphans. Lucky enough to be offered a permanent position, Karl returned in 2003 and took on the role of mahout to a bull elephant named Maximus, who was considered by some to be the tallest elephant in Thailand.
In the time before his full time return in 2003, Ging Mai, at only nine months of age, had tragically passed away. Hope, who had most certainly come to view the younger Ging Mai as his little brother, moved to the larger part of the park where he was immediately embraced by the adult elephants there; most notably Mae Perm, Jokia and a little later, Mae Somboon, who doted on him as much as his lost mother.

Inspired by the real life experience of the author who spent four months with the two orphan elephants, Ging Mai and Hope, this is the story of how after finding each other, they head off to search for the most important thing in a young elephants life; a family.
Along the way Hope teaches the younger Ging Mai all the finer points of being an elephant, all the while making sure that whatever they are doing, they are having fun doing it.
This is a book for young children aged 5 and up, but can be enjoyed by readers of all ages, and is beautifully illustrated throughout by the author.
