The Famishing Vanishing Mahoosive Mammoth
32pp., pbk., RRP $A14.99
“I’m so famishing, I’m vanishing,” moaned the mahoosive mammoth when he woke up early in the morning with an empty tummy. But even though his friend Bug finds and feeds him an enormous amount of food through breakfast, a snack, brunch and lunch, and afternoon tea at the seaside the mahoosive mammoth is still hungry and nothing will satisfy the funny feeling deep inside.
But Bug is clever and realises why his friend is always hungry – and comes up with the perfect solution. And Mammoth finally fixes that funny feeling inside.
This bright, colourful story-in-rhyme moves along at a fast clip and young readers will be astonished at how much food can be eaten by one creature in one day! They will delight in the language – watch ‘mahoosive’ become part of their vocabulary – and have fun thinking of new snacks that might fix that funny feeling or imagining the consequences if the mammoth’s tummy does pop!
A fun read that will enchant young readers.
