Children Ages 4-6 • 7 mins. • Unabridged • © 2018

With a clear voice and a slow, steady pace, Lee German narrates the true story of Maggie, an elephant in an Alaskan zoo who is bereft when the only other elephant at the zoo dies. In the wild, elephant families stay together, so lonely Maggie befriends a tire and carries it everywhere. German has a Midwestern accent and a friendly tone that perfectly matches the story, which intersperses facts about elephant behavior as zookeepers try to console the languishing Maggie. Finally, they decide to transport her to the Performing Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) in California, where Maggie finds a home. Missing from the audiobook is the further information at the end of the print book, including a Q&A with Maggie's keeper at PAWS. S.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2019]
