I think Peter is brave because Peter was daring to go in the dungeon. Peter went to the dungeon to get the magician so he could send the elephant back home. I think Peter is a trooper because he was able to survive through losing his parents and his sister. Peter now lives his life in military school with no family to love. My favorite part of the book was then the magician made the elephant disappear back to Africa. That is my favorite part because I like the way that the elephant just vanished with the wave of the of the magicianís wand.
I would recommend this book to someone who likes a little scare, magic, and sadness. If you are a person who likes elephants and magic than this is the book just right for you. I think this story teaches you that you canít believe everything someone tells you.
