The Great Elephant Chase
"I'm not going to wait around here and let Mr Jackson steal my elephant."
Penniless and parentless, Tad and Cissie are on the run from the tyrannical Mr Jackson and Esther, his greedy companion. But it's not easy to hide when you are travelling with an enormous elephant - especially if the place you're heading for is over a thousand miles away.
Tad and Cissie need all their wits and all their courage as they race across America, trying to stay ahead of their enemies.
