This book introduces the elephant on the wall, a picture of an elephant that Nan bought and because she bought it with love it can talk. He will be featured quite often, his magical powers come in handy to keep the plot moving and to warn Zach and Candy when Nan is about.
However Nan suddenly appears and closes the courtyard doors and the toys are locked outside. Candy isn’t happy she trusted Zach to look after her; she doesn’t like leaving the safety of the junk cupboard so she is angry with Zach and lets Zach know. Poor Zach and Candy are left peering through the glass of the closed courtyard doors.
In the courtyard they meet other characters that can speak, another elephant name Bull who owns the courtyard, and this is ‘Bull’s Jungle’. Bull and the elephant on the wall look after Zach and Candy, when things go wrong, you will have to read the rest of the story to see what happens.
This book is available on Amazon for Kindle or use the Amazon App for iPad or tablet.
