The Magician's Elephant by Kate DiCamillo is a story about a boy who thinks his sister has died long ago.

His story is what happens how and when he finds the Magician's Elephant. This is a book on about the third grade or fourth grade reading level.
#Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science reviews the long history of this mystery--which long predates the "bigfoot" flap of the late fifties--and explains all the scientific pros and cons in a clear and accessible style, amplified by over 150 illustrations.
