"We're going to see the Elephant!" That's what people say when they head West on a journey promising to be "something powerful strange. Like a real live elephant, but even bigger stranger wilder scarier!" Lily Rose is raring to go. Along the way she'll help stitch her family's adventures into a grand and glorious quilt. Inspired by a quilt sewn by young Mary Margaret Hezlep in 1859 during her journey West, readers will relish this spirited tale with its lively heroine and bold pictures, cleverly designed to include quilted elements. And they'll have fun finding the elephant hidden in the final quilt and tracing Lily Rose's journey from Missouri to California in the quilt bordera reminder of a trip that's as BO-dacious as Lily Rose herself!Lowell, Susan is the author of 'Elephant Quilt ', published 2007 under ISBN 9780374382230 and ISBN 0374382239.
