Description - Elephant Man by Mariangela Di Fiore

'Gather round - prepare to be amazed! A sight so very gruesome that you simply won't believe it. Ladies and gentlemen - THE ELEPHANT MAN!'

Joseph doesn't look like other people. His skin is thick and lumpy, his limbs are oddly shaped, and his head has a big bony bump. People call him Elephant Man and scream in terror when they see him. But inside, Joseph longs for a friend to understand him.

As Joseph is bullied and rejected at every turn, his situation grows more and more desperate. But a meeting with a kind doctor holds the hope to change his life

Based on the famous true story of Joseph Merrick, Elephant Man is a powerful tale about being different, finding happiness in even the hardest circumstances, and discovering beauty inside everyone.

The unforgettable true story of one young man's immense courage and his unbreakable spirit.
