A glorious and funny celebration of individuality from the bestselling creators of Who's in the Loo?

When the other baby animals laugh at Elephant for not being able to jump, he sets out to prove them wrong. But hard as he tries, he just can't jump. Then he realises that he is able to do something that no other animal can – his strong, long trunk can make him a hero.


Celebrates individuality. Beautifully told.
