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 gr. Tusk Tusk is a moral tale about racism told through the characters of elephants The black and white elephants are at war Some peaceful elephants who don t agree with the war go off into the jungle In the end all black and white elephants are extinct Years later grey elephants come out of the jungle the ancestors of the peaceful elephants On the last page of the book it says that the big eared and small eared elephants started to not get along foreshadowing possible violence to come I thought this book was an amazing way of discussing euality with children It is an open ended book that leaves room for discussion and interpretation I liked the serious nature of this book compared to McKee s upbeat and extremely popular Elmer The illustrations of the trunks of the elephants made to look like guns brought in a sinister tone to the comforting image of the elephant that McKee has created previously But by using the image of the elephants with subtle links to violence I think makes this book appropriate for children

I really enjoyed this book Although it is a picture book this does not limit its appeal It covers themes that are relatable at all levelsMcKee strips prejudice back to its simplest form He cleverly depicts the idea through two groups of elephants the black elephants and the white elephants He anthropomorphises his elephants by making their trunks almost into arms and hands The elephants use their trunks to fight one another by punching He also transforms their trunks into guns Children may find these images of fighting elephants amusing and so the text helps ease them into a difficult topic No reason is given for the animosity between the two groups of elephants beyond their appearance The obvious analogy is racism but of course the text can relate to prejudice generally The two groups of elephants eventually destroy each other A small group of peaceful elephants go into hiding and eventually we are left with grey elephants McKee ends the text indicating that despite the peace between the grey elephants divisions are once again beginning to emerge recently the little ears and the big ears have been giving each other strange looks This helps to simply explain how divisions begin and hopefully encourages children to celebrate diversity rather than attack itIn terms of classroom use this text can be linked to another of McKee s texts Elmer The two stories are uite different with Tusk Tusk addressing slightly difficult issues in depth However they both share the common theme of diversity Children could use this text to start thinking about prejudice they see in their own lives linking it to RE and PSHE It could also be a good way to begin a history topic involving war
