Follow along with the adventures of a giant elephant and a mischievous baby in this timeless picture-book story.

When an Elephant meets a Bad Baby and offers them a ride, it’s the start of a wild adventure – going ‘rumpeta, rumpeta, rumpeta’ down the road, and helping themselves to ice creams, lollipops, and all manner of sweet treats.

But as a long line of disgruntled shopkeepers and salespeople begin to follow them, Bad Baby learns the importance of saying ‘please,’ and all the trouble you can get into if you forget . . .
