This story made me sad as well as angry that war could hurt so many that were innocent. This book also made me feel touched and uplifted at the same time because the zoo manager hated to kill the elephants. I was happy to know someone cared for them. I was so sad that innocent animals were affected by war just as humans are.
You might want to read this book if you love animals or see no harm in war. I promise you will remember this book for the rest of your life.
I recommend this book because it makes your heart skip a beat and keeps you thinking about the lesson to be learned; war cannot bring peace, only hatred and sadness.
