Small Elephant's Bathtime by Tatyana Feeney


Small Elephant's Bathtime by Tatyana Feeney

Small Elephant loves water. Except, that is, when the water is in a bath. Mummy uses various incentives to entice him into a bath, but nothing works and Small Elephant goes into toddler meltdown before 'hiding' behind the curtain. Luckily, Mummy has one more strategy up her sleeve to get him over his sulk and into the suds. It's to use diversion tactics and laughter - and it's all down to the comedy value of Daddy in some rather fetching trunks! Told with Tatyana Feeney's trademark understated wit and highly individual artwork style, this story captures perfectly the trigger, experience, and dispersal of a toddler tantrum, with humour and a lightness of touch. Perfect for sharing with Dads!


'A sweet, simple story to share together, and the ending is cheeky and sure to provoke giggles'

'You would think that a small elephant would love bathtime, but not this one!'

'a simple but stylish read '

-Walker, The School Librarian 'Tatyana Feeney's individual style of illustrations with her simplistic pencil drawings and use of watercolours captures the bath time battle with humour in a way that's perfect to share with a young reader.
