Yet princess Arabella knows exactly what she wants: an elephant. Her wish comes true. The princess is delighted, but the elephant is very unhappy. She continually sobs and moans: ‘I want to go home.’ After a while, the princess gives in and accompanies the elephant to her house. The baby elephant who waits for them is delighted: his mum has brought his favourite birthday present: a real princess.
