A taste of the story:
“Aisha looked out the window, watching the ocean curl in little waves, lapping the sandy beach outside the hotel. She wanted nothing more than to go run in the surf and sun, but instead she was helping Grandmother Chandra tend to the guest rooms.
Little Aisha followed her grandmother through the room while she smoothed the pillows, buffed the mirrors and put everything in its place. Then the furrow of her brow lifted, the corners of her smile upturned, and she said to Aisha ‘Now, you can place the gift on the pillow.’
Aisha reached into the little wicker basket she carried and took out one small elephant figurine. She turned the smooth white stone carving over in her hand, asking, ‘Grandmother, we provide hospitality to people from far away, so why do we give them gifts as well?’
‘Oh my dearest blossom, that is a very important question, because that gift is at the heart of this great hotel. It is our blessing. The answer will take some time,’ Grandmother said as she led little Aisha to the door. ‘Come, one more room to prepare and then we will collect your brothers and have a story with an adventure.’
If, like little Aisha, you want to hear this story with an adventure, than please pre-order your copy of The Gift of the White Elephant today!
