Synopsis

Trumpet The Little Elephant with a Big Temper by Jane Clarke

It's Trumpet's birthday, but he is feeling rather out of sorts...and soon a bit of bickering with his sister Tilly escalates into a giant tantrum! Calm down, Trumpet! everyone cautions him, and his mother teaches him to count to ten. Eventually, Trumpet manages to tame his temper. But when his mum loses her own temper, it's Trumpet and his friends who get the last laugh! Another delightful picture book from the dynamic duo who created GILBERT THE GREAT, this funny, charming story is sure to be a winner with toddlers and parents alike.

Reviews

Children will lap up (groan!) these undemanding reads. They're fun, they're varied and the combinations of puppies and crime . . . need I say more?

Jane Clarke on Jane Clarke:

I live in Kent with my two Labradors, Bramble and Amber. The dogs love to swim in the sea, so I burn a lot of perfumed candles to stop our house from smelling of damp dog.

Thanks to my Mum and Dad, I had a very happy childhood in the English Midlands. Dad attached a trapeze to the branch of a tree in our garden, and my friends and I spent a lot of time hanging upside down pretending to be acrobats. There were always pets – mice, hamster, and guinea pigs, cats and dogs. For a long time, I thought my dog was my brother. My bedroom was stuffed full of fossils and shells.

My ideas come from my family and pets, my friends and their families, and from school. I often lose all track of time when I’m writing. Amber and Bramble have learned to bring me their leads, to remind me to take them out for a walk.

Most of my stories and poems are funny, because I love to laugh, but sometimes I write about sad things. The saddest thing in my life is my husband’s death. Martin was a lovely man, a great husband and Dad. Andy and Rob are now at university and Martin lives on in them, in our hearts, and in our happy memories.
