      Summer Supporter Giveaway   08/31/2020

      Going on a Summer Holiday (Sort Of...)     The summer giveaway for Patreon supporters is finally here and this time we're doing something a little bit different. I want supporters to tell me where you would go on holiday, if you could go anywhere. The winner will receive a bookish prize based on their answer!   Terms and conditions are as usual. Patreon supporters will be automatically entered into the giveaway and selected at random. As we're a little late this year the draw will be held on the second weekend of September. If you aren't currently a supporter but want to be involved in the giveaway you can sign up to support us here:   https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum  

Chang - elephant book, help required

Recommended Posts

When I was at junior school in the 60s we read a book that I thought was called "Chang". It was about a boy and an elephant and the place where elephants go to die. I wanted to find it for my grandson to read but after Googling and searching on Amazon I can't find any record of it. Can anyone help please?

It looks like it might have been Chang by Elizabeth Morse (sometimes known as Chang the Siamese Elephant) but it's out of print and I only found one copy on Amazon UK here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Chang-Elizabeth-Morse/dp/B000MXEC3G.  I did also find a few more on AbeBooks.co.uk: https://www.abebooks.co.uk/servlet/SearchResults?sts=t&an=elizabeth+morse&tn=chang&kn=&isbn=.  None of them have a description of the book, but if you google "change the siamese elephant by elizabeth morse", some of the descriptions of the links seem to indicate it's what you're looking for.


Hope that helps.

Hi chesilbeach, thanks for finding those links, I was beginning to think my memory was playing tricks on me. Looking at some of those prices I should have kept a couple of copies when we were reading them at school!
