The Road to Elephants - Maram Taibah

The writer protrays a realistic view point of a young girls emotions and thoughts living under strict and harsh regime ran by the nanny while her parents are away on a pilgramage. When she hears a circus is in town it fuels her dreams and she plans to escape.  She encounters danger on several different levels.  There is one harrowing scene in the book which some readers might find disturbing. The moral of the story is that the grass is not always greener on the other side.  For a short story this was full of emotion and feeling.
