Dick King-Smith Pair

Two larger-than-life tales of big elephants with rather surprising little problems! Poor Blessu the elephant has terrible hay fever – and every time he sneezes, his trunk grows bigger. And when Poppet makes friends with a tiny mouse, will their differences cause problems? Animal magic from master writer Dick King-Smith, told in simple words and vibrant colour pictures for the Colour Young Puffin series of first read-alone storybooks.
