1. Personal thoughts and reactions

1.1. My personal thoughts are that it was sad how they had to starve the elephants. Animals are people to and they should be respected and survive like anyone else would during the war.

2. Theme bookmark

2.1. The characters in the story that go through a change are the three elephants. The are all killed so that is a change in life because they no longerhave it. I think that the character Johnis stronger in the inside than on theout because he is intelligent and loyal but is just and elephant. The character that I think is stronger on the outside than inside is the trainer because once he's sees the poor elephants he can't help but to try to save them and bursts into tears when they die.

3. Character bookmark

3.1. None of the characters in the book really show the trait of honestly. I was surprised by the actions of the trainer because he gave the elephants food when they were trying to starve them. A decision made by one of the characters is one by the owner of the zoo and that was to try to starve the elephants. I honestly do not agree with this decision. The protagonist of the story is the trainer. I know because he is telling the story and is one of the main characters.
