Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0977181855, Hardcover)

Elephants of the Tsunami is based on a true story about eight working elephants of Thailand, who, during the 2004 South Asian Tsunami, freed themselves from their bonds and raced down to the beach to rescue nearly fifty people who otherwise would have been consumed by the sea. Sensitively written and beautifully illustrated, Elephants of the Tsunami is a picture book for all ages, and a wonderful way to tell children about a frightening event without subjecting them to explicit images or traumatic language.
