Synopsis

If Elephants Wore Trousers by Henriette Barkow

If elephants wore trousers, what trousers would they wear? Would they be fluffy and pink, like my big sister's pair? A lively discussion should result from this humorous and vivid journey of the imagination. The colourful, atmospheric illustrations invite young readers to embark on an amazing dream-journey as each spread presents this engaging elephant in a different transformation. This wonderful and truly appealing book will be enjoyed by children and adults alike with its fresh and funny rhymes.
