This touching story about an elephant named Tarra and a dog named Bella is especially fun to read because it’s a true story! No one would guess that a retired show business elephant and an adorable stray dog would form a friendship, but these two became inseparable. Carol Buckley’s photography shows Tarra and Bella swimming together in a pond and strolling around the elephant sanctuary. When Bella gets sick, Tarra, loyal and concerned, stands waiting outside for her friend to get better. This is a great book about an unlikely friendship. A must-read for animal lovers!
