You can’t take an elephant on the bus by Patricia Cleveland-Peck (2015)

[Published by Bloomsbury]

I was on a bus once with a bunch of chickens, but elephants? Not so much. The animal vehicle pairing in today’s picture book is hugely entertaining.

“And don’t hail a taxi if the driver’s a seal…

With such slippery flippers, he can’t grasp the wheel.

The taxi will slither and probably swerve,

then throw everyone out at the very next curve.”

What is most impressive is that our very clever author comes up with a nifty solution to IMG_1815the animal-transportation problem. Loads of fun.

Check out You can’t take an elephant on the bus at Auckland Libraries.

Or buy You can’t take an elephant on the bus from Fishpond.
