The great elephant Mae Jabu turned her head from side to side and flapped her ears as she plodded along the track from the village to the beach. There was no birdsong that morning. Everything seemed strangely silent. Before the sun set that day a huge wave would engulf her world and sweep away all that she had ever known, and Mae Jabu would be a hero. A heartwarming story celebrating the extraordinary sixth sense of animals and one brave elephant who saved a group of children during the tsunami disaster in southern Thailand. Royalties from the sale of this book will be donated by the author, illustrator and publisher to assist the Asian tsunami aid effort.
