The Elephant and the Bad Baby, Board book
5 out of 5 (1 rating)


The Elephant takes the Bad Baby for a ride and they go "rumpeta, rumpeta, rumpeta down the road." They help themselves to ice creams, pies, buns, crisps, biscuits, lollipops and apples, and the shopkeepers follow them down the road shouting and waving.

All ends well as the Bad Baby learns to say 'Please' and his mother makes pancakes for everyone.

Review by

This is my son's favourite book at the moment! He's 26 months, and is starting to "read" along. He loves pointing out the elephant's trunk in each illustration, and finds new things to name each time we read it.His great gran gave it to him for his 2nd birthday, and it's perfect for him at this age. Maybe a bit long for a younger child, although the repetition is fun.
