Join Will and Grandpa as they embark on a heartwarming journey which takes them back in time and discover the powerful message behind Grandpa’s motivating tale.


Cheers to another great story by A.M. Marcus! The Elephant and the Rope tells a story about a boy who is having a hard time finding the right answers to his homework. After a few tries, he gives up, and goes to his grandfather, sulking and complaining about his predicament. Grandfather soon tells him a story about his youth when he was still working in a circus.

He tells him that the elephants that he fed were tied to a rope even though those big animals could easily get away, but chose to stay. There he learned something about the way elephants preferred to give up instead of trying again.

This story isn’t only for kids but is also applicable to grown ups who easily get discouraged when the going gets tough. A perfect story to reminds us that if there’s a will, there’s a way. We only need to continue striving and trying until we get the intended results. That we must overcome the challenges in order to achieve our goals. That we shouldn’t be like the elephants who didn’t settle for more. Kudos to A.M Marcus for not only writing a beautiful tale but for also uplifting us and opening our eyes to a more positive attitude!
