Get out of my bath!

Why are elephants such favourites in children’s stories? They are hardly cute and cuddly – more clumsy and cumbersome! Maybe that’s the attraction? Here is another one, Ellie who cavorts in her over-sized bath which is nevertheless too small. Her uninvited friends join in to play but quickly there is an overcrowding problem. Colourful collages and splashing water levels create humour and big-size entertainment.
