Talent shows abound with individuals who can play the piano, juggle plates or pull rabbits out of hats. But what about talents that are a little bit more… extraordinary? Talents that seem to defy the laws of nature, that can combat disease and injury, or fend off danger and death? These pages tell the stories of unique heroes who discover, hone and master their remarkable skills to make a difference, one triumph at a time.

About Our Authors
Young people often struggle to be heard, but Elephant Community Press offers opportunities for students to share their ideas with friends, family and the community at large. By publishing the work of young authors, ECP aims to demonstrate that there is an audience for well-crafted and thoughtful writing, no matter how old the writers are.
Our young authors range in age from 6 to 17 and attend both local and international schools in Hong Kong. They herald from diverse backgrounds, but share with us a passion for storytelling and the belief that everyone has something worthwhile to say.
ECP has worked with students from a wide variety of schools including Canadian International, German Swiss, Kennedy, Diocesan Girls’ Junior School, St. Paul’s Co-Ed, West Island, Braemar Hill, Diocesan Boys’ School, Singapore International, French International, HKIS, Glenealy and Renaissance College.
