Christmas shopping is FAR more fun with Oliver Elephant . . . until he goes missing!
When Noah goes Christmas shopping with his mum and baby sister, he has a brilliant time with his toy elephant, Oliver, playing peekaboo, hiding in a doll’s house and dancing Oliver on tables. But Mum is buying SUCH a lot of things, and Noah and Oliver Elephant start to get a bit tired. Then – disaster strikes – Oliver goes missing! And – oh dear – the department store is VERY big. Will Noah ever find his favourite toy again?
“Oliver Elephant, where can you be? Oliver Elephant, come back to me!”
All children know JUST how important that special toy is, and this touching picture book beautifully captures that moment of despair when that toy goes missing.
Oliver Elephant has a warm and classic feel and is a wonderful Christmas present for little fans of Shirley Hughes’ Dogger or Margery Williams’ The Velveteen Rabbit.
Hugely talented author Lou Peacock has created a heart-warming story with a rhyming text, a satisfying journey narrative and a sweet and funny ending.
Beautifully detailed, festive illustrations by award-winning Helen Stephens, creator of the How to Hide a Lion series. Helen has been shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal, is published in twenty five languages and her books have been selected as books of the year in the Guardian and The Times.
