The Zoo Animals’ Faraway Dream (Special Edition) is a novel exploring how zoo animals, including elephants, cope with being enclosed in cages and stared at by humans all their lives.
Ndlovu the elephant spends her days eating, basking in the few minutes of sunshine and staring at nothing in particular. Until one day a mysterious new animal arrives in the zoo, who doesn’t have a cage, telling everyone stories about other animals in the outside world.
