Ariela is presently a maghost for BAZOOF! She wrote this story since a podcast about elephants was going in the magazine so that they could complement each other. In her words, “The main thing was elephant cowboys. I wanted to write a story about elephants, but I don’t know animals that well (especially elephants), so I focused on the people who care for them.”

Writing Activity

Here are some writing activities for the story THE ELEPHANT RESCUE found on Pages 26 & 27 of the Melvin McMelon #80 issue of BAZOOF!

  3. What happens after the end of the story that Ariela wrote? Write about Crynn and Clove’s next adventure with their elephants!
