It's Trumpet's birthday, but he is feeling rather out of sorts...and soon a bit of bickering with his sister Tilly escalates into a giant tantrum! "Calm down, Trumpet!" everyone cautions him, and his mother teaches him to count to ten. Eventually, Trumpet manages to tame his temper. But when his mum loses her own temper, it's Trumpet and his friends who get the last laugh! Another delightful picture book from the dynamic duo who created GILBERT THE GREAT, this funny, charming story is sure to be a winner with toddlers and parents alike.

4 stars
This is a story about an elephant who easily loses his temper at his birthday party. His mum then teaches him a method to help calm him down. But by the end, it's his mum that loses her temper. I like the way the book teaches little ones that we all lose our temper and gives a strategy to them that they could use. My little ones like the cake and how the little elephant has to help his mum calm down.
