So far in the book, The Care Taker of the elephants takes Lord Bidborough to see the elephants. The girl elephant gives rides with her trunk, we can call them rides but its just a pick up the person and lift them in the air with her trunk. He is scared but he finds his confidence and lets her take him with he trunk. The Lord starts to ask questions and she answers. He asks her if she ever thought about writing a book about the elephants and he meant their journey together and she says no. Then she went home and started to think about it and thats how the book idea started.
