"The most magical book about the African bush since Born Free." Daily Mail A blonde, chic Parisienne, Françoise never expected to find herself living on a South African game reserve. But when she fell in love with renowned conservationist Lawrence Anthony her life took an unexpected turn. Lawrence died in 2012 and Françoise was left to face the tough reality of running Thula Thula without him, even though she knew very little about conservation. She was short on money, poachers were threatening their rhinos, and one of their elephants was charging Land Rovers on game drives and terrifying guests. There was no time to mourn when Thula Thula's human and animal family were depending on her. How Françoise survived and Thula Thula thrived is beautifully described in this charming, funny and poignant book. Their elephant herd, rescued by Lawrence, shared Françoise's grief at his passing but over time forged a new relationship with her. One day a baby, Tom, became separated from the herd and found his way into Françoise's kitchen. Another day there was a desperate race against time to save a baby who had a snare wrapped round his face and couldn't open his mouth to suckle. Meanwhile Françoise fulfilled her dream of building a rescue centre for orphaned rhinos and other wildlife. Abandoned hippo baby Charlie, who hated water, joined the centre's rhinos and quickly became best friends with a little girl rhino called Makhosi. The traumatised babies had round the clock care, including an unlikely nursemaid in the form of a German Shepherd called Duma. If you loved Lawrence's The Elephant Whisperer, or just want to spend time with some very special animals, then you won't want to miss this sparkling book.… (mere)

I read her husband's book, The Elephant Whisperer, which I enjoyed very much, and I also enjoyed this novel by Francoise, too. I admired her strength and courage in staying true to her belief's and caring for the animals of Africa, particularly Elephant and Rhinos, ensuring a safe place for these animals to live life without fear of being killed by poachers. Her book reminded me how disgraceful it is, in my opinion, to kill rhinos for their horns just because they are considered to have (unproven) medicinal/magical qualities - I have been fortunate to be in Africa and see these animals in the wild, and I can't imagine taking the life of these beautiful creatures for prize or for unproven qualities. Francoise Malby Anthony did a great job reminding me that these animals deserve protection and respect by us, and I particularly liked the interaction of the young animals as they began to trust their 'human' friends - it was touching.

An interesting sequel to her husband's book, The Elephant Whisperer, which I really enjoyed. It was recommended to my by our Safari host in South Africa at the end of our time there. I really support the work that is being done to defend against the terrible destruction of animals by poachers. Francoise has carried on after her husband's untimely death and taken things to a new and supportive level. She is an amazing woman, along with her team of heros. ( )

Continuation of the story of Thula Thula after Lawrence's death. Impressed how his wife did not give up on their dream and continues to fight against the awful poaching situation. (Poaching stories were very upsetting and hard for me to read). ( )

An Elephant in My Kitchen is described as a sequel to the international bestseller The Elephant Whisperer by Lawrence Anthony. In it Francoise Malby-Anthony recounts events covered in her husband’s books from her perspective (including their fateful meeting in Paris and her move to South Africa) along with her heartache and struggles to keep their conservation dreams alive since his passing in 2012.

In simple, conversational prose Francoise describes their reserve’s neverending battle to protect their animals from poachers. The war-like footing, equipment and sheer manpower involved, along with the trauma poachers inflict on the animals is confronting. But in this context, it makes the wins, especially Francoise’s dedicated team’s care for orphan baby rhinos, elephants and even a hippo, even more heartwarming.
