Dindy and the Elephant
by Elizabeth Laird
Meticulous in her research, well-travelled, forever curious and with a profound sense of social justice, Laird delivers another fine portrayal of a young person trying to make sense of an often unjust and confusing adult world. Here, an English girl, Dindy, and her family prepare to leave 1940s India, just as it's on the brink of independence from Britain. In doing so, Dindy starts to question British rule and the place she's called home her whole life. Age 9-12, Paperback 120pp
