It's about a young African elephant and his little sister who get separated from their family as they flee from greedy hunters who want to shoot their parents and steal their ivory tusks. As they search for their family they wonder sadly if they'll ever find them again.
We meet young Tippu first on the front cover of the book. He has an appealing expression on his face and looks very sweet. His eyes are set wide apart and his large ears stick out on either side of his head. He's standing in a large plain of grass scorched golden brown by the sun. In the distance a group of black and white striped zebras are grazing. Behind them are some acacia trees whose leaves are a favourite food of elephants
