Hannah’s Dream by Diane Hammond

October 8th, 2011 | Posted in Books

Hannah has been cared for by Samson Brown for her 41-year captivity.  But Samson is aging and his health is failing, and the zoo needs a plan. Enter Neva Wilson, an energetic young zookeeper whose creative ideas for Hannah’s well-being immediately put her afoul of Harriet Saul, the zoo’s petty, tyrannical administrator. To save Hannah’s life, Samson and Neva scheme to transfer her to an elephant sanctuary, though their plan comes with great personal risk. –Carol Hagga
