Archie, the Kid Who Talked to Elephants

Lluís Prats Martínez

"A novel with a series of ingredients carefully selected to create a moving, heartfelt tribute to Isak Dinesen’s Out of Africa."

In this novel for young people and adults, Lluís Prats transports us to Kenya in the 1950s. This is where Archie, the son of British colonists who lives next to a plantation, forms a close bond with an elephant born nearby. Archie will spend most of his life in England, but despite the distance between them and the time that passes, their link never breaks. As their friendship endures, both of their lives move forward, with all sorts of ups and downs, to the backdrop of a constantly changing world.
