The Magician’s Elephant by Kate DiCamillo

Peter wants to find his sister. Adele lives in an orphanage. A magician attempts to produce lilies. An elephant falls on a wealthy woman. A fortune teller tells Peter an elephant will lead him to his sister.

The Magician’s Elephant weaves together the seemingly separate lives of several people who discover, in the end, they are all connected. The end is truly lovely. I didn’t totally enjoy the writing style, however. It’s a sweet book, though, so I recommend it to people of all ages. It makes a nice read-aloud.
