You can’t take an elephant on the bus …
It would simply cause a terrible fuss!

Elephants’ bottoms are heavy and fat
and would certainly squash the seats quite flat.

Never put a camel in a sailing boat, or a tiger on a train, and don’t even THINK about asking a whale to ride a bike … This riotous picture book is filled with animals causing total disaster as they try to travel in the most unsuitable vehicles. A real romp of a book, with hilarious rhyming text and spectacular illustrations.

“’… 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
