Tumf's comfortable life is destroyed one day while he enjoys a bathe at the waterhole-during his absence his entire family are killed by ivory hunters. Devastated in his sadness and only fortified by a song and friends he meets along the way, Tumf sets out to find his extended family. His journey takes him through all kinds of physical dangers and emotional turmoils until he feels he can go on no longer. W J Corbett is a long-standing campaigner for animal conservation, remember Toby's Iceberg? Little Elephant combines an exciting read with a clear message condemning ivory poaching. Tony Ross's illustrations illuminate the cover wonderfully showing the affection in Tumf's family, and the line drawings inside are crisply expressive.
