LoveReading View on The Elephant and the Bad Baby

A smashing cumulative story which parents and babies can gleefully share as the elephant and the Bad Baby get up to one bad thing after another as they go rumpeta, rumpeta, rumpeta through the town on a spree of madness. Taking an ice-cream from the ice-cream stall, a bun from the baker, some crisps from the snack bar and a lollipop from the sweet shop without ever once saying ‘Please’ the pair are chased by a row of suitably irate shopkeepers before mending their ways and returning home to a comforting mum and a stack of pancakes. Total satisfaction all round.

The Elephant and the Bad Baby Synopsis

One day, an Elephant offers a Bad Baby a ride through the town, and so begins a delicious adventure and a "rumpetting" chase. But when the Elephant realizes that the Bad Baby has forgotten his manners, the chase ends with a BUMP . . . and tea for everyone! A classic story all babies, toddlers and their parents will love, warmly and wittily illustrated by Raymond Briggs.
