The young orphan Peter Augustus Duchene has many questions, but there is one he wishes most answered: "Does his sister still live? And if so, how can he find her?" The answer he finds from the fortuneteller in the market square of the city of Baltese is one he has to learned to believe. "An elephant! An elephant will lead him there!"
