Publisher's Summary

The international best seller about friendship, second chances and a tiny glow-in-the-dark pink elephant.

What would you do if you woke up to see a living, breathing, tiny, glowing pink elephant? If you’re anything like Schoch, who lives on the streets of Zürich and is decidedly down on his luck, you might well think it’s time to put away the bottle before your hallucinations get any stranger, and go back to sleep.

But what if the tiny pink elephant is still there when you wake up? And clearly needs someone to take care of it? And what if you discover that it’s been created through genetic engineering, by a group of scientists who just want to use it to get rich and don’t care about the elephant’s welfare? And that they’re in cahoots with a circus and will stop at nothing to get it back?

What if this little elephant is about to change your life?

Great story, good narrator but hard work as an audiobook

I only persevered with this because it’s so short. The story is great and the narrator is good. I just don’t think this works as an audiobook.
