KIRKUS REVIEW

 Cora is a young girl happily living with an elephant family in Africa. One day she notices that she is rather different from her folks and begins to question her origins. Her parents explain that she washed up on shore long ago, her only identification a life- preserver tag from San Francisco. Cora and her keepers head to the city on the hill and take up with the kindly Fishpins, owners of a life-preserver factory, but home beckons for the pachyderms and their prodigy. Cozy pen and watercolor illustrations enliven this sweet tale, one that encourages curiosity, adventure, and the plumbing of one's feelings. (Picture book. 3-8)
