Author Talk, Great Gray, A Book about Exceeding "NO" Expectations

There was much excitement in the village of Anapur. Elephants, Saguna and Prabir were expecting a little one--a perfect elephant calf. But when the baby was born...he was a little less than perfect. Follow young Gray on his journey from "not quite right" to becoming Great Gray, a village hero.

I am very excited to share the story of Great Gray, his life, and his journey from a victim of bullying to a celebrated survivor. Not too long ago I had a dream that brought this story to life. Our program will introduce you to this amazing character, all the others that surround him. Some see him as a loser, but others watch him grow and change right in front of them. In addition to reading this book, we will learn more about the East Indian culture, the life of elephants in captivity, what it is like to be bullied, and be a bully. The programs can be adjusted to different ages and grades.
