By Debu Majumdar
Illustrated by Lynn Wolfe
Viku to the Rescue continues the story of Viku’s adventures begun in Viku and the Elephant. Viku lives at the edge of a forest in India. He becomes friends with an elephant by saving him from a snake. The elephant makes only two sounds – a happy trumpet and a sad cry – but the two friends understand each other very well. Stories of their adventures unfold quickly. In the first book, “Viku and the Elephant,” they thwart the evil plans of ivory poachers. In Viku to the Rescue, Viku rescues his friend from elephant-catchers by sheer perseverance and his intimate knowledge of the forest. These Viku stories tell us about life in another culture.
This book works well as a read aloud story for young children, is suitable for early readers (2nd and 3rd grades), and is an excellent chapter book for 4th and 5th graders.
