Saving Lillyby Peg Kehret
Synopses & Reviews
AGAINST All ODDS
Erin Wrenn and her friend David are in big trouble because they refuse to go on a field trip to the Glitter Tent Circus. They wrote a report on the sad lives of circus animals and discovered that the Glitter Tent Circus is one of the worst animal abusers of all. Mrs. Dawson is determined to give her students the happy circus experience she remembers from her childhood; she won't let Erin and David share their report or pass around a petition asking for a different field trip. Erin is determined to force Mrs. Dawson to change her plans...or she'll stage a sit-in at school.
Then Erin sees an even bigger problem: Lilly, a mistreated elephant, is about to be sold to a hunting park. How can she save Lilly before it's too late? It seems impossible!
Can one girl — and a class of sixth graders — make a difference?
After seeing an abused circus elephant named Lilly, Erin persuades her classmates to help her buy Lilly and send her to an elephant sanctuary. However, the kids only have three weeks to raise $7,500. It takes ingenuity, determination, and an amazing amount of hard work to pull it off.
