The Slightly Annoying Elephant

David’s got so much talent! His first picture book has jumbo laughs – plus brilliant pictures by genius artist Tony Ross. The man who makes the nation giggle dishes out BIG chuckles for all you little laughter-lovers. Do you like elephants? Do you like jokes? Well… imagine if you filled in an Adopt an Elephant form at the zoo. Then imagine if the elephant really came to stay. Would that be fun – or would it be slightly annoying? This book is so hot it’s setting fire to our delivery vans. Kids and grown-ups: don’t fight over who gets to read it first!

    I did enjoy the story but I still think it was for younger kids, but still David Walliams will never stop kids from smiling and laughing. He is so funny, in every book he has written he always has to add some humour into it which I love about him and his books.
