"An entertaining read"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

An entertaining read that has a twist in the end. The child I got it for has asked for it to be read hundreds of times! Also enjoyed by the 30 children I teach!


Mum is crazy about spots - spotty clothes, spotty wallpaper, spotty games like dominoes; Dad loves stripes - stripy suits and stripy ties, stripy humbug sweets. No wonder they make their son laugh - mind you, they think that he's funny in his grey patternless clothes. When they go to the safari park, Mum goes wild about the big cats, while Dad enthuses over the zebras. But, as the last spread reveals, their son is even more obsessive about...elephants! Packed with glorious patterns of stripes and spots, this book also contains a clue on each spread as to the nature of the little boy's obsession - from a pink elephant toothbrush-holder in the bathroom to a bun in the cafe!
