The Magician's Elephant by Kate DiCamillo

Peter is a ten-year-old orphan who is being raised by a retired soldier. He has been told by the soldier that his sister died the day she was born but Peter has memories of a holding a crying baby. One day instead of buying bread he pays a fortuneteller who tells him an elephant will lead him to his sister. That night an elephant magically crashes through the opera house ceiling. Can this elephant really help Peter find his sister? A wonderful fantasy about love and hope.
