Summary
"When Ben's father is posted to Thailand as the new U.S. Ambassador, the family takes along its pet eagle, Sammy. After Sammy is accidentally released from his cage, Ben and his Thai friend Jai embark on a chase throughout Thailand to get him back. Along the way they ride in a three-wheeled taxi, tour a glittering golden palace, and visit the ancient city of Ayutthaya where they stay overnight with monks in a Buddhist temple. Joining up with an elephant handler, his elephant and her baby, Mali, they travel hundreds of miles through the northern regions of Thailand, taking part in the annual Elephant Fair and Thai New Year celebrations. Throughout the journey, Sammy the eagle and Mali the elephant meet and land in trouble, but through their heroic deeds they become new and lasting friends. This book celebrates the enduring close relationship enjoyed by Thailand and the United States of America since 1833"--P. [4] of cover
