Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite Thunder: An Elephant’s Journey by Erik Daniel Shein and L.M. Reker is an adorable story that revolves around a young pygmy forest elephant, Thunder, who is on a mission to find his mother, Serenity, after escaping from poachers. Thunder, along with Penelope the Parrot, escapes when their vehicle crashes. They go back to the jungle and from there the story takes readers through the perils of the African jungle where Thunder meets new people and makes new friends who help him to find his way back to his mother and his herd. Braving all dangers and adventures, Thunder uses the technique of stomping his two front feet to get back with his mother and keep the poachers at bay. The story conveys some relevant messages to readers and stresses the importance of understanding and respecting animals. Be it via Soma the Rhino, Penelope the Parrot, Frederick the Flamingo, or Jennetta Blue the Blue Butterfly, readers will find themselves glued to the story till the very end. The book not only handles the topic of poaching, but also blends adventure, magic, suspense, and some good messages together, making it a must-read storybook for all those who love animals and want to address the issue of poaching. The characters are all adorable, real, and memorable, and they highlight the role of friends in everyone’s life. The mother and son moments between Serenity and Thunder are beautiful and connect well with readers. The author also looks from an angle of how animals feel about poachers and how they live with the fear of being separated from their families.
