Bram wanted Modoc (an elephant) as his own. But Modoc belonged to the circus. So Bram ran away with Modoc.Then he finds himself in an adventure that he will never forget.
I think Modoc was a very good book. One thing I didn't like is that Modoc is very sad. It has many deaths in it. I did like how Modoc and Bram were best friends and born on the same day. It was very cute how when Bram called Modoc's name, she would run toward him.
