Roxi the dog felt like a queen lounging in her comfortable bed. She wished all the animals in the world led a life like hers. She decided to visit the elephants to see if they led a nice life. She went down Elephant-Trunk road and reached an elephant sanctuary where the sign said: HAPPY ELEPHANTS LIVE HERE. She saw many happy elephants as she walked through the beautiful gardens and some were eating piles of bananas and some were roaming through the trees. She felt happy that the elephants were having a good life. Roxi continued her adventure down the Elephant-Trunk road and came to a sign that read: SAD ELEPHANTS LIVE HERE. Let's go with Roxi through the creaky door and find out for ourselves how the sad elephants lived and why they were sad and lived terrible lives. What did Roxi do to help them and would they end up being like the happy elephants who had a nice life?
