The Girl Who Stole an Elephant by Nizrana Farook

Chaya lives in a village that is ruled by a King.  He's not a nice man.  If anyone needs help, he doesn't help.  So Chaya steals and gives it to the people in need.

Peachtree Publishing and Edelweiss let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published March 1st.

She manages to sneak in the palace and steal some of the queen's jewels.  A boy got caught by an alligator and his family needs money to save his leg.  She gives them one of the jewels to sell and help their son.  Unfortunately it wasn't a clean getaway.  The King's men find the jewels in the possession of her male friend and they jail him in the dungeon.  He'll lose his head shortly.  So Chaya sneaks in and gets him out.

Then they flee to the jungle to try to escape.  Chaya steals one more thing.  She takes the King's elephant.

This is a good adventure with lots of challenges and constant hiding from the King's men.  They finally get caught.  Will they survive?
