The Magician's Elephant

My students just finished our latest novel, The Magician's Elephant by Kate DiCamillo. 

Here is the description that is found on the back of the book:

"When a fortuneteller’s tent appears in the market square of the city of Baltese, orphan Peter Augustus Duchene knows the questions that he needs to ask: Does his sister still live? And if so, how can he find her?
The fortuneteller’s mysterious answer (An elephant! An elephant will lead him there!) sets off a chain of events so remarkable, so impossible, that Peter can hardly dare to believe it.
But it is―all of it―true."
I was excited to see that Renee Smalley had a novel study to go along with The Magician's Elephant. She creates the best novel studies!
The Magician's Elephant {Novel Study, Story Cube, & Word Wall}
The end of the book project that goes along with this novel is a story cube. My students had a lot of fun creating these. Below are some pictures of the final products. 

And now to pick out our next novel!
