There’s all sorts of useful advice in this picture book. Not only should you not let an elephant drive a digger, it isn’t advisable either to let a polar bear cut your hair, or a seal prepare your meal; and you should never go to the loo with a kangaroo. In fact, it concludes, it’s far more sensible to forget about letting the various animals help and just play with them instead. Each zany situation will have children laughing out loud and they’ll soon be joining in with the lively rhyming text. David Tazzyman’s illustrations inject an extra layer of wild excitement and anarchy, and this deserves to become a huge favourite with readers.
Elephants driving diggers?
Gorillas on scooters?
A shark in the bath?
A kangaroo ... on the loo?
Join in with the fun as an array of improbable creatures tries to be helpful (with hilarious consequences) in this laugh-out-loud picture book.
Praise for You Can't Take an Elephant on the Bus:
... delightfully brought to life with David Tazzyman's quirky illustrations and a jaunty rhyming text. You will laugh out loud as tigers ride on trains, whales ride on bikes and giraffes go on aeroplanes Publishers Association
The bold, caricature-style illustrations, rhyming couplets and varying font styles add to the humour Practical Pre-School
Everything that you could wish for in a picture book: humour, ridiculous situations and imagination-stimulating scenarios. Quite frankly, this is picture-book writing and illustration at its very best Being a Mummy
David Tazzyman's scratchy style is a great match to this scatty, surprising picture book Books for Keeps
Chaotic, crazy, fabulously funny and full of humorously energetic illustrations, this is a book that promises to evoke giggles of glee from readers fortunate enough to come across it Eye, Eye
