A jewel of a middle-grade novel about a resilient little girl who longs for her dad to break free from the elephant of his depression. When Olive's dad drags himself to work in the morning, the elephant goes with him. When he comes home again, so does the elephant. It's always th...ere, heavy and silent, casting a shadow of sadness over him. Olive knows it has been like this since her mother passed away when she was a year old, and she can't stand to see her father burdened anymore. With help from her grandfather and her best friend Arthur, she hatches a plan to rid her family of the elephant once and for all. Before long, she'll learn that while happiness isn't that simple, small things can move mountains or elephants. Award-winning author-illustrator Peter Carnavas portrays a child's response to her father's depression with naive wisdom. In defiance of the looming grey presence, The Elephant is an intergenerational story of resilience, family, and hope.
