“Hi Lilla,
I am finally posting the third book that I collaborated on with Mary Tavener Holmes and John Harris. The other two were My Travels With Clara and A Giraffe Goes To Paris. It is the true story of an albino elephant named Abu that was given as a gift to Charlemagne, emperor of most of Europe by Harun Al-Rashid, caliph of Baghdad. It is a heart warming tale of the friendship between the emperor and Abu. There were coins, portraits and tapestries created with Abu’s image on them. Charlemagne showed off the beautiful Abu to visiting princes and kings. When Abu died of old age, Charlemagne was so heartbroken that he wept. The book was published by Marshall Cavendish Children and is available on Amazon.
