Too Many Elephants in this House

written by Ursula Dubosarsky

Penguin Random House Australia 2012

In Eric's house there were too many elephants — in the living room, in the kitchen, in the bathroom, even in his bedroom!

The elephants take up a lot of space, but Eric loves every one of them. So when his mum says they have to go, Eric comes up with a clever solution to a very BIG problem . . .

A delightfully energetic story, full of fun, exuberance and elephants

Kids Book Review

Dubosarsky’s penchant for childlike fun shines through in this adorable book, with Andrew Joyner’s timeless and joy-filled illustrations taking her text to even greater heights. With a deliciously retro feel, this is imaginative, childhood magic at its best. 
Boomerang
