In My Mailbox (35)

From the library:
The Magician's Elephant
by Kate DiCamillo

What if? Why not? Could it be?

When a fortuneteller's tent appears in the market square of the city of Baltese, orphan Peter Augustus Duchene knows the questions that he needs to ask: Does his sister still live? And if so, how can he find her? The fortuneteller's mysterious answer (an elephant! An elephant will lead him there!) sets off a chain of events so remarkable, so impossible, that you will hardly dare to believe it’s true.

From Chapters:
by Lesley Livingston

"I don't love Sonny Flannery."

That's the lie Kelley Winslow told to protect the boy she loves from a power he doesn't know he possesses. Devastated, Sonny retreats—to a haven for Lost Fae that's hidden deep underneath New York City.

But Kelley's not about to let things end in heartbreak. To get Sonny back, she's got to find out who's after his magick—and how to use her own. She's got to uncover who's recruiting Janus Guards to murderously hunt innocent Faerie. She's got to help rebuild the shattered theater company she called family. And she's got to do it all without getting dangerously distracted by the Fennrys Wolf, whose legendary heart of stone seems to melt whenever he's around Kelley.

What was in your "mailbox" this week?

In My Mailbox was started by Kristi of The Story Siren.


  1. I need to read Tempestuous, the other two books in the series were so good, I just haven't got around to buying it yet. ]= The Magician's Elephant looks pretty good, never read anything about an elephant before :L Happy reading!

  2. Haven't heard of either of these titles, but The Magician's Elephant sounds intriguing. Enjoy!
