Tinga Tinga Tales: Why Elephant Has a Trunk

“You see, there was a time when Elephant had no nose. He was big, he was clumsy and he was very, very SMELLY!” Come to Tinga Tinga, the land of stories and surprises, to find out how Elephant was turned from a smelly, dirty creature with a short, stubby nose into the glorious beast we know today. When Elephant’s nose gets “snapped” by a grumpy Crocodile, it is stretched and stretched until it is a very useful long, wiggly nose indeed! TERRUMPETT! An African folktale is vibrantly retold for curious tots in this richly colourful story of how the elephant came to be, inspired by the indigenous Tinga Tinga art of Tanzania.
