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.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
