Praise for Tusk Tusk

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)
