When Jamesís teacher assigns him to report on an elephant at the National Zoo, he agrees reluctantly. Old boring things, just standing around, he thinks. What could an elephant have to do with him? But that night, Jamesís boredom turns to amazement when he sees the zooís African elephant, Daisy, pounding along his street as if she were on the most important mission in the world! From the moment Daisy heads for his bedroom window and hoists him on her back, James knows heís part of something mysterious and wonderful. Soon he realizes that Daisy is searching for something during their nightwalks through the city. James is determined to help her find itóand along the way, he manages to find what heís yearning for, too. More than just a remarkable animal adventure, this is a story about perseverance, hope, and the meaning of family.
