Have you ever had one question you wanted the answer to more than anything in the world? I'm not talking about what your grade will be on your paper, or what you are going to eat for dinner. I'm talking about the kind of question that can change you life. Peter had that kind of question and when the fortuneteller's tent appeared in the middle of the city, he uses the money that was supposed to buy his dinner to go ask the fortuneteller his one question. What the answer is does change his life but it also leaves him more confused than ever. This book is full of magic. It also has an elephant, an orphan, things left unsaid, and the answer to the question, "what if?" If you want to know the answer to Peter's burning question, try "the magician's elephant" by Kate DiCamillo. (Esther Moberg,, librarian)
