    I am going to have to guess that you hear this saying every day. I have used this phrase right here in this very same spot on a different Self-Published Sunday, “don’t judge a book by its cover. Elephant Milk by Diane Sherry Case has a pretty snappy piece of artwork on the cover, but what does it all mean, and what exactly is elephant milk? Okay, check out what is between the covers on this one:“Sean Hayes is driving a lime green dune buggy that a friend of hers traded from Elvis Presley for angel dust. A major motion picture is about to be released with Sean's accidentally naked breasts in it and she has just watched her best girlfriend shoot heroin, while Keith Richards nodded on the couch. Sean parks the dune buggy on Coldwater Canyon, walks down the hill, and lights a joint to calm down. There she finds a pile of black clothes, wet with blood. The Tate murders? It is 1969 and things are starting to get really icky.Meanwhile, Sean's first boyfriend has taken off to Mexico and she has no idea exactly where he is. But a girl has to follow her heart. Sean leaves Beverly Hills determined to find her lover, even if it means joining a traveling circus and getting lost in a world of drum rolls and lions and Mayan glyphs. Even it means having knives thrown at her for a living, and facing a loaded machine gun in the hands of her rival. Somehow, she will find Frank, even if means going deep into the jungle, just in time to view a total eclipse, on the back of her favorite elephant.”Let’s have some fun with this shall we? I mean just to look at the cover you need to chill and relax a bit there is so much going on. The ride and adventure Sean Hayes takes is not your run of the mill adventure/romance romp, no in fact it is a 180 from that. The circus for some looks fun, for others scary, here we get a glimpse of what may really go on behind the big tent and after hours. The thing of it is though, is that Diane Sherry Case uses many unusual vehicles to get her plotline and narrative to us: it is well written, it comes together, and it is rich and meaningful. There aren’t too many elephants out there that have a snake at the end of their trunk, flowers all over its head, a spade tattoo on its side and a ladder coming out its back. That’s the stuff I picked up at first glance. The thing of it is, the novel grew on me, I enjoyed it, and I didn’t even have to inhale, expose myself, or meet Keith Richards.What are you reading today?

    Sean Hayes is driving a lime green dune buggy that a friend of hers traded from Elvis Presley for angel dust. A major motion picture is about to be released with Sean's accidentally naked breasts in it and she has just watched her best girlfriend shoot heroin, while Keith Richards nodded on the couch. Sean parks the dune buggy on Coldwater Canyon, walks down the hill, and lights a joint to calm down. There she finds a pile of black clothes, wet with blood. The Tate murders? It is 1969 and things are starting to get really icky.Meanwhile, Sean's first boyfriend has taken off to Mexico and she has no idea exactly where he is. But a girl has to follow her heart. Sean leaves Beverly Hills determined to find her lover, even if it means joining a traveling circus and getting lost in a world of drum rolls and lions and Mayan glyphs. Even it means having knives thrown at her for a living, and facing a loaded machine gun in the hands of her rival. Somehow, she will find Frank, even if means going deep into the jungle, just in time to view a total eclipse, on the back of her favorite elephant.My 2 cents:What first caught my eye was the cover, I love it. Next was the name of the book. It does catch your attention at least it did mine. Sean is 17 in 1969. So easy to fall in love hard and fast. Frank her first real love is a jerk, but she follows him down to Mexico. Since she doesn't know where he went she joins a Circus so she can go/travel from town to town to hunt him down. Along the way she meets some interesting characters and she is still on the naive side. Sean throws herself into everything. It doesn't help her mother doesn't really care about her well being. There are some interesting twists and drama going on.

    I met Diane Sherry Case a few times some years ago when she was married to singer/songwriter Peter Case. On one of those occasions she told me about the novel that she was struggling to finish. At the time I thought a story about a young American woman who runs away with a Mexican circus might work, but I also thought that it would probably be yet another story that probably would never be finished. It seemed everyone I met during this period had a work in process. But last week I found a copy of "Elephant Milk" in a bookstore and discovered it has been available for five years. I read it in a single day, not because it's relatively short but rather that it is so good I didn't want to put it down. She writes a clean line, comes up with images that are original and right, and keeps her story moving. Her primary character's first-person narrative is perfect. I should have had more faith.

    Elephant Milk, by Diane Sherry Case is a quick and fun read about a girl named Sean who runs away with the circus... literally. In search of her one love, Frank, Sean finds herself in a number of compromising situations. Though she is looking for love, she finds much more.This was a coming of age story set in 1969 that would be appropriate for a 17+ crowd, or 15-16 if you are a more liberal parent, due to a few sex and drug references. Because of the simple prose, the 157 pages went by quickly. The story was engaging and imaginative. However, I really would have liked to have had more back-story for a couple of the characters. Overall, this book was a light and enjoyable read.On a scale of 1-4, I give this book a 3.5. A couple of the characters could have been developed a little deeper, but the simplicity of the story made it a good read.This book was published by Miraculous Books.ISBN: 978-0-615-38094-0Thank you to Diane Sherry Case for the gift of this book.

    This turned out to be one of those situations where you should not judge a book by its cover.There's so many things going on in this cover that you get a sense of confusion. Not at all what came across the page when reading the story of Sean.This girl came to life immediately for me, and I couldn't help wondering where would her story would lead. I really became mesmerized by her strong nature, as wild as it was.I was baffled and disappointed in the ending. It just became too much about something the story didn't need.Still a good solid read.3.5/5

    Totally cool! Story of young actress in Hollywood who runs away to join a circus in Mexico, while chasing down her first true love. Starts realistically with sex, drugs and rock'n'roll and gets rather surreal as we travel deep into the mountains and jungles of life and love.
