From the publisher:
As only a young,curious elephant can, Tonga’s enthusiasm to wild hippos, lions, and zebras in her native Africa has her bounding out of bed early one morning. But as she and her two friends uncover the secrets of the wild, she finds that things are not exactly as they seem. A black bear, splashing around for fish, and a white-tailed deer, drinking out of a lake throws her for a loop. Where is Tonga, exactly? And can she be happy in a place that is similar, but not exactly like her homeland?
