The Girl Who Stole an Elephant

Chaya, a nobleman’s rebellious, outspoken, no-nonsense daughter, just can’t resist the shiny temptations the king’s palace has to offer. But playing Robin Hood for her impoverished community doesn’t come without risks, and when Chaya steals the queen’s jewels from a bedside table, a messy getaway jeopardizes the life of a close friend.

After an equally haphazard prison break, Chaya barely escapes on the king’s prized elephant! With leeches and revolution lurking in the jungle, Chaya leads her companions on a thrilling adventure. After leaving her village as a thief, can she return as a hero? Or will Chaya’s sticky fingers be the beginning ― or the end ― of everything for the intrepid gang?

Own Voices debut author Nizrana Farook spins a page-turning middle grade tale in a lush, fictional Sri Lankan setting. Just right for adventure fans, the book explores themes of friendship and loyalty, risk and reward, and heroism.

Description

"Breaking Neel out of the palace’s underground prison is the least of Chaya’s crimes when she steals the King’s prized elephant, Ananda, as their getaway vehicle. Accompanied by Nour, the daughter of a wealthy merchant 'from the land of deserts,' the friends ride Ananda into the jungle, with the king’s guards in hot pursuit. Filled with lush descriptions of the South Asia–inspired landscape and delicious food, debut author Farook weaves a fast-paced... adventure against a backdrop of political upheaval." — Publishers Weekly
