What would you do if an elephant came to your window at night? James couldn't believe it was happening. The elephant he saw at the zoo that afternoon was at his window. The elephant's trunk searched the room until it found James's leg. Then Daisy wrapped her trunk around the leg and pulled James out the window. The next thing he knew, he was riding an elephant through the streets of Washington DC. The elephant returned the next night and the next night. Who would believe how James spent his nights? Certainly not his new foster parents. His social worker wouldn't either. But James knew that he had to help the elephant find what she spent every night searching for. He would have to become one of the NIGHTWALKERS.
