January is when we celebrate Peace Day, and that´s why the new reading for our Book Club this month will be the fantastic story "Tusk, tusk", by David McKee. It is a fairly short and simple book, yet it faces many complex issues: prejudice, discrimination, violence, tolerance, difference, ... It is a story about black and white elephants that begin a war against one another. The peace-loving elephants disappear into the jungle as soon as the conflict starts, and the other elephants kill each other. For many years, no elephants were seen in the world, until the grandchildren of the peace-loving elephants emerge from the jungle.
David McKee is a well-known English writer and illustrator. He was born in Devon, on the 2nd of January 1935. He is especially famous for creating the series of Elmer, the patchwork elephant.
