The Lovereading4Kids comment
A modern classic, this story about prejudice and conflict is more applicable today than ever. Once, elephants were black or white, and the two different tribes were at war, destroying each other until it seemed there were no elephants left in the world.
However, one day the descendants of the peace-loving elephants emerge from the jungle, and they are all grey.

Tusk Tusk by David Mckee
Once elephants came in two colours: black or white. They loved all other creatures, but each set wanted to exterminate the elephants that were not the same as themselves. 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.
