The Elephant in the Room

Publisher: Templar

Review

Someone has smashed Father Giant’s favourite china elephant. It wasn’t Olive and her brother Grub. Nor was it the naughty newt, the laughing lady or the yucky yak. So who is the culprit?

The Elephant in the Room is far from your average picture book, with its distinctive and striking images throughout and rollicking rhythmic text, which is a joy to read aloud.

It’s completely captivating, especially with the use of the popping neon colour throughout the artwork, giving it a surreal twist. There's also a lovely message about families spending time together.

This is a magnificent magical mystery that keeps you guessing until the very end about who the culprit might be.
