Synopsis: [Translated from the Danish by Martin Aitken]

Told from the perspective of precocious fourteen-year-old Peter, The Elephant Keepers' Children is about three siblings and how they deal with life alongside their eccentric parents. Peter's father is a vicar, his mother an artisan, and both are equally and profoundly devout. The family lives on the fictional island of Finø, where people of all faiths coexist peacefully. Yet nothing is at it seems.

When Peter's parents suddenly go missing, Peter and his siblings fear the worst -- has their parents' relentless quest to boost church attendance finally put them in danger? Told with poignancy and humor, The Elephant Keepers' Children is a fascinating exploration of fundamentalism versus spiritual freedom, the vicissitudes of romantic and familial love, and the triumph of the human spirit.

About the Author: PETER HOEG was born in Copenhagen. Before becoming a writer, he worked as a sailor, ballet dancer, and actor. He published his first novel, A History of Danish Dreams, to positive reviews, but it was Smilla's Sense of Snow, a New York Times bestseller, that earned him immediate and international literary celebrity. His books have been published in more than thirty countries.
