    " This is actually in a collected book of Twain here. This is funny if a little anti-climatic. The updates from the detectives in the field are hilarious. Very sarcastic Yankee in King Arthur's Court type stuff. "

    " Odd, short & silly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janosch | 5/24/2013

    " Hilarious! What a great short story. Somewhat weird and violent but without a doubt unique. An elephant gets stolen and soon turmoil and choas spreads. The writing is as usual top notch. To conclude, a typical Twain story! :D "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 3/7/2013

    " A decent story about an elephant chase! "

    " Had a great little read while waiting in a queue at the bank. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Peter | 5/20/2011

    " The story is absurd and to me only mildly amusing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura | 1/5/2011

    " This one was rather humerous, but also anti-climatic. Twain seems to like killing main animal characters (A Dog's Tale, A Horse's Tale). I wonder why. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaron | 12/20/2010

    " Um... a pretty cynical and funny skewering of detective work, esp. in the days of Mark Twain. "

About the Author
Author Mark Twain

Mark Twain, pseudonym of Samuel L. Clemens (1835–1910), was born in Florida, Missouri, and grew up in Hannibal on the west bank of the Mississippi River. He attended school briefly and then at age thirteen became a full-time apprentice to a local printer. When his older brother Orion established the Hannibal Journal, Samuel became a compositor for that paper and then, for a time, an itinerant printer. With a commission to write comic travel letters, he traveled down the Mississippi. Smitten with the riverboat life, he signed on as an apprentice to a steamboat pilot. After 1859, he became a licensed pilot, but two years later the Civil War put an end to the steam-boat traffic.

In 1861, he and his brother traveled to the Nevada Territory where Samuel became a writer for the Virginia City Territorial Enterprise, and there, on February 3, 1863, he signed a humorous account with the pseudonym Mark Twain. The name was a river man’s term for water “two fathoms deep” and thus just barely safe for navigation.

In 1870 Twain married and moved with his wife to Hartford, Connecticut. He became a highly successful lecturer in the United States and England, and he continued to write.
