When a fortuneteller’s tent appears in the market square of the city of Baltese, orphan Peter Augustus Duchene knows the questions that he needs to ask: Does his sister still live? And if so, how can he find her? The fortuneteller’s mysterious answer (An elephant! An elephant will lead him there!) sets off a chain of events so remarkable, so impossible, that Peter can hardly dare to believe it. But it is - all of it - true.

This book helped me to understand myself and my children so much better. I felt like it gave insight into my upbringing and will help me to become a better single mom. The content is informative, entertaining, and easy to follow along

With his signature wit and commonsense psychology, Dr. Kevin Leman walks you through your own personal five-day action plan.

loved it. this book really helped me to understand my birth order as well as some of my family members. This helps me understand them better in my dealings with them. It was very eye-opening for me regarding my children as well. I grew understand some of the reasons behind why they do things the way that they do and it makes more sense. I recommend this book for anyone to read who wants to understand themselves better and others.
