    One thought on “Tua and the Elephant”

    1. This is a wonderful book! Just right for reading to your 5-year-old or for your independent reader who is excited about reading chapter books. The illustrations are beautiful, the print is easy to read, and the story is heartwarming and adventurous. I use it for tutoring with my dyslexic students who need interesting visuals, text that is not intimidating, and a story that will keep them motivated to continue reading. The social themes are present but not heavy, so I can choose how in depth a di [...]

    2. Plot: This book is about a young thai girl named tua who one day whilst looking around the night market in her home town while her mum is working, finds herself in an unfamiliar part of town. There she is shocked and moved to see the mistreatment of an elephant by its owners . The next thing Tua knows, she and the elephant are running away being pursued by the bad guys and looking for a place where Pohn-Pohn (as the elephant is soon named) will be safe. Friends, relatives, and perfect strangers [...]

    3. Everyone in Tua’s little village in Thailand loves her. She weaves her way among the market stalls while her mother is at work, getting attention from vendors her know her as their little “peanut.” But when Tua sees an elephant being mistreated, she knows she must save her from the cruel men who own her. But how can she steal an elephant, and what will she do with the elephant once she has her?Tua and the Elephant is the delightful story of a little girl who bonds with an elephant and sets [...]

    4. This is a cute story, no question there. The illustrations are gorgeous, the characters are lively and every aspect of it is colorful and vibrant. However, the writing is a bit unpolished. In the beginning it really feels a bit wild and all over the place, with Tua moving so fast and contacting so many people, a lot happening. It does settle down into a more cohesive and less overwhelming pace as the story progresses. The themes in the story (animal welfare, friendship, courage, helping others) [...]

    5. I think kids who loved Winn-Dixie or The One and Only Ivan will eat up this sweet story of a young abused elephant and the little girl in Chiangmai Mai, Thailand who rescues the elephant. Some kids may find the Thai phrases sprinkled throughout a little confusing, but I really think kids will root for Tua and Pohn Pohn as they run away from Pohn pohn's rotten owners. Would make a fun read around for 3rd/4th grade. Sweet and fast moving.

    6. I loved this book. It is such a sweet story and it gives an amazing insight into both the Thai culture and the amazing things that a child’s courage can accomplish. The writing is mostly simple and smooth for the intended age group of young adults. The only difficult point may be the occasional greetings in Thai. The story is entertaining and flows quickly from one major event to the next. The true gem of this book however is in the lesson that it teaches to young readers: no one should be abu [...]

    7. -Who is your favorite character and why?Tua Because she went on all sorts of adventures -What surprised you most?That Tua wanted to keep the elephant.-Would you change the ending? Why/why not?No because I think it ends really well, I like how Tua saves the elephant.

    8. There is compassion, adventure, foreign language, and heart to this book. It feels like a younger chapter book, but has fun and vivid vocabulary words, which make it a great read for a 4th or 5th grader.

    9. The characters were pretty simple and the "deeper" issues were kept light. I enjoyed using this as a launch to talk about Thailand and the treatment of animals with my daughter and her book club, but it doesn't make the lasting impression that some other books do

    10. gr 3-6 202 pgspresent day, Chiang Mai, Thailand, 9 year old Tua helps rescue an elephant from two men who were mistreating her. Tua is determined to keep the elephant, whom she names Pohn-Pohn, safe, but how do you hide an elephant?Good story, happy ending

    12. A delightfully diverse middle grade read, Tua and the Elephant is a story about a young girl named Tua who "adopts" a young elephant, and their adventures together. Set in the bustling back drop of Thailand, Tua's story offers authenticity and richness to a culture not often found in books for young readers. I really enjoyed getting a glimpse into the culture through Tua's daily adventures through the market, and her wondering around. Debut author R.P. Harris did a superb job at capturing my att [...]

    13. After reading Bud, Not Buddy, I immediately picked up this companion novel. Deza Malone, who appeared briefly in Bud, Not Buddy, is the main character in this newest book by Curtis. The Great Depression is again the setting for this novel. Deza and her family live in Gary, Indiana where they are trying to survive the economic hard times. Deza Is an excellent student and is doing very well in school. She has a best friend, Clarice Johnson, who shares her heart. Her brother, Jimmie, is older (15 y [...]

    14. Tua (Thai for peanut) is out exploring the night market one evening in Chiang Mai when she suddenly finds herself in a part of the city she hasn't been in before. She witnesses two mahouts mistreating an elephant and when she makes eye contact with the elephant, believes that the elephant wants her to do something about it. Tua ends up "stealing" the elephant, whom she names "Pohn-Pohn", and recruits her many family members in helping her hide the elephant from the mahouts. This starts a journey [...]

    15. Positive PointsThe characters and settings are original. The story is about a ten-year-old Thai girl who adopts a baby elephant. I don't know any other MG novel about elephants or set in Thailand. This is a big plus for me. I love reading about settings I'm not familiar with. This book taught me many things I didn't know about elephants in Thailand.Negative PointsI'm not a big fan of omniscient POV. Most recent novels have limited POVs. There was a lot of "head hopping" in this book, which I con [...]

    16. Tua and her elephant friend Pohn-Pohn absolutely shine in this adventurous, adorable story! Tua is a clever, warmhearted girl who lives with her mother in Chiang Mai, Thailand, in a neighborhood full of friends, aunties, and uncles--Uncle Somchai, who makes her banana roti pancakes, Auntie Nam, who gives her curry, Uncle Sip, who tries to teach her how to haggle, and the one and only Auntie Orchid, the finest actress in Thailand. One night, Tua frees a young elephant from two abusive handlers an [...]

    17. This story is a little younger than I usually read, definitly middle grade, but totally enchanting. Little Tua (whose name means peanut because she was so small at birth) brings us her world, Thailand, as she struggles to rescue a baby elephant from the men mistreating her. In the process we meet her loving and hard-working mother, her aunt the actress who considers the world her stage and everyone a potential audience, and the men and women of the market who love little Tua and consider her par [...]

    18. Tua is a small girl living in Thailand. Tua loves to explore and finds a hole in a wall. With this opportunity she has to go through the hole and see where it takes her. She finds two mahuats (elephant trainers) and a young elephant. She immediately connects with the elephant who is chained and being made to do things by using a bamboo switch while the men get money from the people to feed the elephant. Tua followed the men to their camp and saw how they mistreated the elephant. She slept and wh [...]

    19. Tua lives in Chiang Mai, Thailand, with her very busy single mother. Tua's favorite thing is to visit the market, and one day while there she finds a young elephant who is being abused. Of course, she takes the elephant with her, and goes to her Auntie Orchid's house, and the two decide to take the elephant, which Tua names Pohn-Pohn , to the religious order that Auntie's brother is joining, because it has more room. They manage to evade the elephant's irate owners, and are eventually put into c [...]

    20. Tua and the Elephant is the story of a young girl, Tua, who lives in Thailand. One day, she lays eyes on an elephant and realizes it is being treated poorly. Tua decides to steal the elephant is on the run from the mahouts who once owned the elephant. As one might imagine, it is difficult to hide an elephant and readers travel along with Tua and Pohn-Pohn (the name Tua gave to the elephant.) While constantly on the run, Tua and Pohn-Pohn form something…an irreplaceable friendship. This was a u [...]

    21. Review of an advance copy:A charming little story about a Thai girl who "adopts" a young elephant after seeing it mistreated by its current owners. Tua seems to get everyone (except her mother!) involved in her quest to save the elephant, and she has a lot of people on her side, but ultimately it is Tua who has to do most of the rescuing. It is clear that the author loves the Thai people and their culture, and he makes the market and other settings come alive with sights, sounds, and smells. The [...]

    22. What a lovely, refreshing story. The books size makes it feel as if you are holding Tua and Pohn-Pohn's hearts in your hands. The writing is superb, giving readers the feel of being in bustling Chiang Mai. The illustrations (though sparse) are wonderful and their coloring truly complements the story. I especially appreciate the depth with which the author shared cultural traditions and the Thai language.Pros: Look no further than Tua and the Elephant if you want a bedtime adventure with heart. R [...]

    23. Little 10 year old Tua knows everyone as Uncle or Auntie in her area of the city of Chaian Mai, Thailand. Forever exploring the night market, and its surroundings while her mother works two jobs. That is until she meets two mahouts who are mistreating a baby elephant. Tua just can't resist the call to rescue the adorable elephant, but where does one hide an elephant? Colorful Auntie Orchid helps Tua decide on a proper name, well if one Pohn, or happiness is good, two will bring double happiness! [...]

    24. Tua, is Thai for peanut, which describes her size but not her personality. One night as she is visiting the night market she happens upon an elephant being mistreated by her mahouts. Tua is determined to save Pohn Pohn as she has named the elephant. Relying on family and community Tua goes on a series of adventures staying one step ahead of the greedy mahouts determined to reclaim their elephant. Vivid portrayal of Thailand including phrases of Thai give the story authenticity. (A glossary would [...]

    25. I just love this sweet story. Tua is a tiny thing hence her nickname "peanut" who lives in bustling Chang Mai, Thailand. One evening, while she is being mischievous, she comes across a mistreated elephant. They bond immediately and so begins an adventure to save her new friend Pohn Pohn. Don't let the animal in distress angle fool you--this is by no means a melancholy story. Quite the opposite--it is fast paced, full of adventure, clever dialogue, loving people and of course terrible villains. T [...]

    26. Despite Yoo’s engaging illustrations, my experience reading Tua and the Elephant (Harris, 2012) reminded me of eating dinner at a disappointing Thai restaurant. I selected this text specifically for the setting and was frustrated by the expatriate playing the voice of a Thai insider. The Thai phrases and cultural tags didn’t create the authentic, aesthetic heat I desired. I appreciated Tua (Peanut) as a strong female character, despite the fact that Harris’s narrative didn’t give her spa [...]

    27. This book was really cute. Tua wants to save the elephant from her owners who are mean to her and hurt her. This young girl is so brave and inspiring. Not many children are aware of what goes on in other parts of the world so this book will definitely open their eyes. It may be a hard book for children to read because of the heavy subject matter and the way the book is organized into small chapters with very little pictures. However, I think the kids will enjoy the story and feel inspired after [...]

    28. Tua and the Elephant is the story of a young girl, Tua, who lives in Thailand. One day, she lays her eyes upon an elephant and realizes that it is being treated poorly.

The reader is taken on a journey as Tua and Pohn-Pohn (the name Tua gave the elephant)travel and hide from these people chasing them. Constantly on the run, Tua and Pohn-Pohn form an irreplaceable friends [...]

    29. I honestly had no interest in reading this book. I am a Children's Librarian and it was chosen for one of our book chats. I am not the person who is holding the book chat. It did not seem like something I would be interested in reading, but I decided to give it a try anyway and after the first 30 pages I was not feeling this book and I honestly did not think I could get through it. I decided to pick it up again because I felt like I should try to read more and I could not stop reading. I finishe [...]

    30. Full disclosure: I abandoned this book after just a few pages. I was really looking forward to this book, especially as I thought the cover promised a sweet tale. And the tale probably is sweet, but it also was BORING. Moved too slowly, and all of the Indian words sprinkled throughout the text, while defined, were a burden to me to read. I couldn't remember them all, and if I couldn't, how would a kid not familiar with this culture be able to do it?I could also see the purple ink as a problem fo [...]
