Following on from "We Love Bunk Beds!", the elephant sisters are back to make you laugh once again! It's Shirley's birthday, and she's almost as excited as her little sister, Doris. But her hand-me-down party dress isn't as pretty as Shirley's brand new one, and not one of the presents Shirley's friends bring to the party is for Doris. It's all becoming a bit of a disappointment! A warm-hearted, funny story about sibling love and envy, with a sweet and very sticky ending!
