Elephant Wellyphant

You might think there’s just one kind of elephant – big, grey and blobby. But in this novelty book you’ll meet all sorts of exotic elephants, from the Polka-Dot Umbrellaphant to the spangly Cinderellaphant! Which will be YOUR favourite? Lift the flaps (and laugh a lot) to see! Will it be the Fruit Jellyphant? The Chocolate Caramelephant? Or even – hold your nose! – the stinky Rude Smelliphant? There’s an elephant for everyone in this comic masterpiece!
