As calves, Asian elephants Precious and Baba roam the wild together, curious and proud. But when they get captured and are split up, their time together seems like a distant memory. Still, separated by many miles and over many years, their friendship remains, and there’s hope they will once again roam wide open spaces together.


"Heartwarming . . . a sweet and sensitive encouragement of wildlife conservation." —Kirkus Reviews

"This sweet story of enduring friendship should help create empathy and spark lots of questions." —Booklist
