The Vanishing Elephant, Charles Way and Sabine Dargent


In the heart of Bengal, a young boy named Opu dreams of becoming an elephant trainer. When he befriends Janu, an Asian elephant, their friendship is a first step on an adventure so huge, it spans decades and continents.  On their separate paths, they face fearsome encounters, stormy seas and strange new worlds. 

It works as a great story to read aloud to younger children and to share with older children, the layout and shape of the book is great for shared reading. 

This moving story of friendship and belonging from award winning theatre company Cahoots was named Critic's Pick by the New York Times. The live show is coming to Belfast for one week only this Autumn! Don't miss it - book via the Grand Opera House Belfast, at
