You Can’t Let an Elephant Drive a Digger
32pp., pbk., RRP $A14.99
Don’t let an elephant drive a digger . . .
Diggers are big – but elephants bigger.
No, if you want to move earth or dig holes,
best not let an elephant near the controls.
So begins this follow-up to You Can’t Take an Elephant on the Bus which is just as hilarious as its predecessor. All the animals want to do is help you through your day but with a crocodile wanting to help you with teeth cleaning, a kangaroo assisting you on the loo and a seal preparing your meal, things could get a little chaotic. Luckily they come up with their own solution.
Winter has been dragging on – record rains in some parts, drought in others and so many minus-many nights where I live that it really is time for a good laugh, and this book provides it. Sharing a bunk with a skunk brings its own mental images and little ones could have fun making their own suggestions. What about a giraffe in your bath or a pheasant who’s unpleasant??
Lots of fun to bring a smile to the gloomiest face as the imagination runs wild.
