More informationTumptin’s Sneeze is the story of a little elephant and the determined girl, Kiya, who befriends him. Tumptin provides good luck to the village by keeping their crops healthy from the abundant moisture of his sneezes. But Kiya wants to find out what is causing Tumptin to get sick, bringing on such enormous sneezes. Will she be able to convince the others to help Tumptin even when it means the village might lose their crops?
