    In this tale of courage and determination, David Guss looks back over the Second World War exploits of PoW Lt Alastair Cram.

    Cram was taken prisoner in North Africa in November 1941 but ended up living in 10 different camps and three Gestapo prisons. However, Cram was a serial escapee - and found his way to freedom no fewer than 21 times.

    Cram met David Stirling, the legendary founder of the SAS in Gavi (known as the 'Italian Colditz') and together they laid the groundwork for the 'Cistern Tunnel' escape - one of the most audacious and also little-known escape attempts of the entire War.

    The Elephant Whisperer was a bestseller when it was published in 2009 but sadly the book's author - renowned conservationist Lawrence Anthony - died in 2012.

    In An Elephant in My Kitchen, Lawrence's surviving partner Francoise Malby Anthony looks back over her grief and the way she had to take over the running of South African game reserve Thula Thula - even though she knew little about conservation.

    She had to contend with a lack of funds, poachers and a rogue elephant charging at Land Rovers full of terrified guests. Among her other incredible experiences were a baby getting lost in her kitchen; a baby hippo who hated water making friends with a little girl rhino; and a German Shepherd called Duma who became a nursemaid to the elephants.

    Witty and poignant, this is a book about how Francoise overcame her grief with the help of a new tusked family - and then went on to fulfil her dream of building a rescue centre for orphaned rhinos and other wildlife.
