Here is the silliest picture book you'll read this summer

Published on: 30 July 2018 Author: Sophie Offord

It's what we've been waiting for: the follow-up to the bestselling You Can't Take an Elephant on the Bus is going to give you and your child some almighty giggles. 

There's nothing nicer than sharing a book with your child and seeing them fall about at something funny.

It lightens the mood, it releases the grumps and it gives you a chance to bond.

Well, we've got just the book recommendation for you...

You Can't Let an Elephant Drive a Digger (Bloomsbury) is the latest picture book from Patricia Cleveland-Peck and David Tazzyman.

Just like their first book together, it shows some animals trying to help humans or just wanting to fit in – but failing.

Although a shark is a breathtaking fish in the ocean, it is NOT such a good companion in your bubble bath.

Likewise, you don't really want a seal in your ball pool or a big, bad wolf reading you the bedtime story. 

Ridiculous in all the right ways

The fun here lies in the mild danger and the contrast between these animals' natural habitat and our everyday lives.

It's very, very silly. It's also good way to talk to your little one about why these situations are so wonderfully ridiculous – and how everyone can fit in somewhere

Perfect for children aged around 3 to 6, this is a great book to keep boredom at bay and put a smile on your faces.
