"This is your home now," everyone tells Sieta, but Sieta can't help feeling sad when she thinks back to her previous home over the mountains, before her mother and father died of illness and she came to live with Aunty. One day, Sieta's teacher takes the children to see the orphan elephants in a nearby elephant park. The moment Sieta sees the baby elephant Satara, and he looks soulfully at her, each recognises the sadness in the other. How Satara helps Sieta to forget her sadness and start living life afresh is sensitively told and warmly illustrated in a book which children will love both for its emotional impact and for its endearing portrayal of elephants.
