Board Book




Get ready for a fun-filled ride and join a whole range of crazy creatures on a hilarious board book adventure!

You can’t take an elephant on the bus …
It would simply cause a terrible fuss!
Elephants’ bottoms are heavy and fat
and would certainly squash the seats quite flat.

Never put a camel in a sailing boat, or a tiger on a train, and don’t even THINK about asking a whale to ride a bike … This riotous board book is filled with animals causing total disaster as they try to travel in the most unsuitable vehicles. With hilarious rhyming text and spectacular illustrations, this is a real romp of a book – perfect for reading aloud!

Publisher Review

You will laugh out loud * Guardian * Everything that you could wish for in a picture book: humour, ridiculous situations and imagination-stimulating scenarios. Quite frankly, this is picture book writing and illustration at its very best * Being a Mummy * Chaotic, crazy, fabulously funny and full of humorously energetic illustrations, this is a book that promises to evoke giggles of glee from readers fortunate enough to come across it * Eye, Eye * It's delightfully brought to life with David Tazzyman's quirky illustrations and a jaunty rhyming text. You will laugh out loud as tigers ride on trains, whales ride on bikes and giraffes go on aeroplanes * Publishers' Association *
