Synopsis

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!
