Small as an Elephant by Jennifer Richard Jacobsen

My rating: 4.7

This wonderful little novel is about Jack, who is camping with his mom and he wakes up to find her gone.  You soon realize that the mother has some type of mental illness and this isn't the first time there has been erratic behavior.  It is about Jack's quest to find her and then get back home.  He is quite resourceful and encounters a lot of things.

Small as an Elephant by Jennifer Richard Jacobson
This is an easy read with a lot of depth to it. It is recommended for ages 9 and up although I think the subject matter is pretty advanced.  This is very well written and emotionally compelling.  It will be interesting to see what my niece thinks of it as this is a book we are reading together.
