The Elephant series, written by Patricia Cleveland-Peck and illustrated by David Tazzyman, is one of our favourite picture book series.
From the first book You Can’t Take an Elephant on the Bus to the latest You Can't Take an Elephant on Holiday, the stories are jam-packed with animals causing total disaster! Kids love Tazzyman's brilliant illustrations, the books' simple humour, engaging rhymes and the fun array of creatures that get into all sorts of mishaps.
Never put a camel in a sailing boat, or a tiger on a train, and don't even THINK about asking a whale to ride a bike!
You Can't Take an Elephant on Holiday is the latest book in the series and Toppsta reviewers love it. Here are a few of their early reviews:
"[my little boy] requested it over and over and then went to bed to "read" it to himself. He adores it!" MrsSmith
"A perfect bedtime story." elilpirana
"a winner with my little ones and I am sure it will be read many times over." apple5054
