Elephant in My Kitchen!

Publisher: Egmont

A young boy is rather perturbed when he discovers an elephant in his kitchen, munching her way through the chocolate biscuits. He is even more alarmed when he finds a gorilla messing up his toys, a rhino bouncing on his bed and a tiger on the toilet! What are all these creatures doing in his home and how can he get rid of them?

When he speaks to the animals, they explain that they don’t have enough to eat and their homes are being destroyed by climate change, deforestation and pollution. The boy knows that he must come up with a plan to save them before it’s too late.

Witty, rhyming text dances across each page, making this a perfect book to read aloud. The accompanying illustrations are colourful, lively and full of humour. The important environmental message is delivered in an accessible manner, and children are sure to delight in the cheeky animal antics.
