Summary
Based on a true story, tells of eight elephants working on the beach in Thailand that sound the alarm and rescue as many people as they can when a tsunami hits.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Elephants of the Tsunami, by Jana Laiz and illustated by Tara Cafiero, is a pictorial re-telling of an extraordinary true event that occurred December 26, 2004 on Khao Lak Beach, Thailand, the morning of the devastating South Asian Tsunami. As many as a million people were killed, and many more lost everything they owned.

EarthBound Books is proud to present this beautifully illustrated and sensitively told story of selfless bravery performed by working elephants who risked their lives to save many who otherwise would have been consumed by the sea.

A portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to Tsunami Relief, as well as to the Red Cross and UNICEF to help relieve those affected by the recent hurricanes of the Gulf Coast and earthquakes in Pakistan, India, and Kashmir.
