The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the Greenaway Award 2007.
A very imaginative book of real charm and freshness, rampant with pearly elephants on parade, and beautifully drawn humans. It has a lovely 1980s disco feel, complete with a whiff of Art Nouveau. The illustrations convey a wonderful sense of movement, size and scale and there is so much detail here: every single inch of the page is covered. The inter-generational teamwork conveyed is great, and there are lots of in-jokes to enjoy.
The Elephantom by Ross Collins
The wryly comic tale of a small girl plagued by a mischievous 'elephantom' who rides up and down the stairs at night on a scooter, eats all her peanut butter and has his friends over for rowdy parties. When her parents don't believe her, the little girl finds a sympathetic ear in her Gran, who has a plethora of phantom pets of her own. Grandma directs her to a shop run by 'Spectral and Sons', who present her with a box tied with ribbon. When she returns home the elephantom is having fun piling up the furniture. The girl opens the box to reveal a...mouse-phantom! Elephantom disappears squealing in fright ...to take up residence next-door, where he begins to pester a new family!
