After the white elephants and the black elephants kill each other off, the grey descendants of those nonfighting elephants who hid during the war emerge, only to eventually find new differences to set them against each other.

This book was obviously written by a hippie! The grey elephants sit around and look at psychodelic butterflies after the black and white elephants kill each other. I thought it was a bit odd to read about the blacks wanting to kill the whites and the whites wanting to kill the blacks.....but my kids didn't read and hear it the same way I did. They loved it! It just goes to show how forced "PC" my generation has become and how little we know about the generations before us and their struggles. This book is just a tiny drop in the bucket of seeing how people of the time it was written; really felt and saw things.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
