The Story of Baitong and Boon

The Story of Baitong and Boon tells the story of a special friendship between an elephant and a boy deep in the forests of northern Thailand. 

Baitong and Boon become friends and learn to make music together. Until the boy, Boon, has to leave for school in the city. Baitong, heartbroken, wanders off in search of his human friend and ends up lost and captive in Bangkok. You’ll have to read the book to find out how a dog and music saved the day. 

Proceeds from the sale of The Story of Baitong & Boon go towards the Himmapaan Foundation (Thailand) whose purpose is to encourage travelers and the travel industry to take part in activities to restore or improve the quality of life of local people, either through environmental and community work or educational projects.

Baitong and Boon was co-written by Phantila Phataraprasit, daughter of Asian Oasis founder and Yeoh Siew Hoon and illustrated by Rewat Suradej.  ,

 

The book was inspired by Phantila's stay in an elephant camp in North Thailand ans she approached Siew Hoon for guidance in writing a children's book about elephants, something that'd be fun to read and spread the love of elephants among young and old alike.
