Ella Sets Sail

Written by Carmela D'Amico

Illustrated by Steven Henry

It's anchors away for Ella the Elephant, as her magic red hat takes her on an ocean adventure that shows her what it truly means to be lucky. Ella loves her lucky red hat. Her grandmother gave it to her. She wears it every day. And it's helped her in all of her adventures.

But then one of her friends loses the hat, just when Ella needs it most. And when Ella chases it out to sea - braving a fierce storm and an unfamiliar island - she discovers the real meaning of luck.
