Logical thinking George, the more lateral thinking Gina and the lie-detector dog, G.B. The thinking of this young team is full of imagination and perception. Their task is to out-think the elephant thieves. At first it appears that no one would have a motive for stealing the elephant. Then, suddenly it seems that everyone has a motive. The 3G team sorts through these very confusing motives and picks out the correct thread to follow. The elephant complicates matters by reappearing again and then disappearing once more. The young detectives have constantly to adjust their thinking. Often they disagree. There is a surprise ending which offers a perfectly logical explanation for these strange events. A story for young and old about the power of good thinking and collaboration to solve problems.
