Tusk Tusk Summary


Tusk Tusk by David McKee

Once, elephants came in two colours: black or white. They loved all other creatures - but each set wanted to destroy the other. Peace-loving elephants ran and hid in the deepest jungle while battle commenced. The war-mongers succeeded: for a long time it seemed that there were no elephants in the world at all, not of any colour. But then the descendants of the peace-loving ones emerged from the jungle, and by now they were all grey. 'This book was one of my favourites as a kid, I simply relished in the gloriousness of a load of elephants battling it out in a bizarre forest. It wasn't until I was a bit older that I recognised the importance of the message that lay (not so subtly) underneath.' OLIVER JEFFERS

Tusk Tusk Reviews


"This book was one of my favourites as a kid, I simply relished in the gloriousness of a load of elephants battling it out in a bizarre forest. It wasn't until I was a bit older that I recognised the importance of the morality that lay (not so subtly) underneath." -- Oliver Jeffers
"This simple, yet striking, book is an ideal way to introduce children to the concept of empathy, and to celebrate diversity, rather than fearing it." * Carousel *
"A wonderful book for children and parents (and politicians)" * Early Years Educator *
