Synopsis

Why Elephant Has a Trunk by

You see, there was a time when Elephant had no nose. He was big, he was clumsy and he was very, very Smelly! Brilliantly colourful Tingatinga artwork tells the story of Elephant's transformation from a smelly, dirty beast with a short stubby nose into his glorious Tinga Tinga persona. Featuring the colourful cast of Tinga Tinga animals, when Elephant's nose gets 'snapped' by grumpy Crocodile it is stretched and stretched until it is a very useful long wiggly nose indeed!Terrumpett!

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
