As only a young, curious elephant can, Tonga's enthusiasm to see the wild hippos, lions, and zebras in her native Africa has her bounding out of bed early one morning.

But as she and her two friends uncover the secrets of the wild, she finds that things are not exactly as they seem.

A black bear, splashing around for fish and a white-tailed deer, drinking out of a lake throws her for a loop. Where is Tonga, exactly? And can she be happy in a place that is similar, but not exactly like her homeland?

In her new book, Tonga, The African Elephant Story, author Debbie Buttar takes children - and adults too - on a wild ride through the African plains...or is it Tennessee? Find out for yourself in this lushly illustrated, delightfully written book inspired by Buttar's support of elephant sanctuaries in America.A

The details of Tonga's story were inspired by several non-profit sanctuaries that have provided home and protection to elephants rescued from zoos and circuses. The names and descriptions of the African elephants are fictional.
