    dlybarger's book review was featured in Elephant in the Garden.
    Have you ever wondered what a journey to try and escape the Nazi’s would be like? This story is based on Lizzy. She is in a retirement home. The lady that takes care of her has a son named Carl that reminds Lizzy of her brother Carly. Lizzy explains her story of when her mom worked at a zoo and she heard that the Nazi’s were coming. This story mainly tells about how Lizzy’s family took an elephant from the zoo that they loved so dearly named Marlene and escaped the Nazi’s and their journey through it. I enjoyed this book because it has all kinds of emotions. (Happy, sad, scary, intense, exciting) It was very detailed. Elephant in the garden has made me realize how lucky I am to be living in a safe place and to have a great family. All of those reasons of why I love the book make it a great book that you will not be able to put down. Some of the main characters are Lizzy, Marlene, Carly, and Peter. My favorite character is Marlene because she is so sweet but also sensitive. She is an elephant but she has emotions like a real human. She cares about and has feelings for others. My age recommendation for elephant in the garden is 10+. If you like historical, intense books you’ll like this book. I hope this helped you find a good book to read.

    I wasn't sure that I would like a book about huge bugs and rats (I hate spiders!), but I found this book very enjoyable. Gregor is the kind of guy you root for. I even found myself crying over the death of a bug. If you like epic fantasy novels, you will like this book. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
