  2. Love the book trailer. I haven’t read this one yet but now I can’t wait to read it. Good job!

  3. The book was great!
    Just a few questions!
    What inspired you to be a author?
    Is this a true story?
    It’s kind of sad. Thanks!

  4. The book was great,however I have a few questions for the author.
    Is this a real story?
    I think it’s historical fiction!
    What inspired you to be a author? You had so many details I couldn’t take my head out of it! Every minute of the day I’m reading!
    What gave you the idea of the girl’s name Elizabeth?
    It was a great name.
    How do you write good books?
    I would like to try and write a book someday, too!
    Thanks!

  5. This book was great. I could not stop reading it. I read it more than 5 times. I also liked the illustrations. I wish I could have a pet elephant like Marlene. I liked the part where Lizzie and Peter went to the circus and found Marlene. It was amazing that Marlene remembers Lizzie after being separated for a very long time.

  6. The book was Fantastic!!! I couldn’t stop reading it.

  7. I like how in how all af his books he includes animals because he loves them.
    Wonderful story!It was a little sad too!

  8. I think this book is very well written and keeps you still asking questions. My class thought this as kind of annoying but I thought this was uniqe. Usually I have no questions at ALL in other books but in this one he ended in a way I asked question but were not that annoying so you don’t like the book.
    I really like this book!

  9. I really love Elephant in the garden. Ilike it how a old woman telling a story becomes a big booK! I like the trailer.

  10. I love how you just get sucked into the book I just wanted to read it on and on and on!

  11. I loved this book how they survive through the war.
    I didn’t quite like the end because the author left a hook and
    made me ask questions. I wish it would just end but anyway I liked this book.

  12. i like this book, but i don’t like the end so much because the author left a hook and made me ask questions but overall it is a very good book

  15. Wow!! This was a really great book & very well written!
    I couldn’t stop at just a chapter every week in the library!
    I really like the way that it was actually the nurse listening to the older Elizabeth telling the story but it feels like it was the younger Elizabeth. I will continue reading Michael Morpurgo’s books.

  16. This book is really good!! I feel like I want to keep reading . I want to read Michael Mnorpurgo’s book.
