Moses

The True Story of an Elephant Baby

Photographer: Jenny Perepeczko
For Ages: 4 - 8
Meet Moses, an orphaned elephant baby from Malawi, Africa, who is curious, loving, and full of mischief! This nonfiction picture book bursts with fun facts and adorable photographs.

Moses is a little elephant who lives at the Jumbo Foundation, a home for orphaned animals in Africa. Like all elephants, Moses has big, floppy ears, and a very long trunk.

But in many ways, Moses is just like any kid! He likes to play with his animal friends and with his human baby sister, Catherine. He loves to cuddle and give great big hugs. He likes to share...but not always. And sometimes, he can be a bit naughty!

So get ready to learn all about elephants, to understand the challenges we face in protecting them, and to make friends with Moses—he can’t wait to meet you!

Jenny Perepeczko

Jenny Perepeczko was born in Gweru, Zimbabwe, in 1964 and spent her early childhood on the family farm before they emigrated to Malawi to farm in the Mchinji district. Her earliest memories are of her parents fostering a wide variety of both domestic and wild animals that had been injured or orphaned. From a very young age she started to get involved with the care of these animals. As an adult she has continued this work. As a result of Moses the elephant coming into her life, Jenny has set up the Jumbo Foundation to take care of large wild animals in need of fostering or nursing until they are able to be returned to the wild. Jenny has three children—Louise, Craig, and Cheryl—and one grandchild, Catherine, all of whom share her devotion to helping animals in need.
