Rating
Celebrate thirty years of the Large family with this special board book edition of a modern picture-book classic. "If you are not familiar with these stories, you really have not lived ... you just couldn't get better" Guardian A stunning 30th anniversary board book edition of a family picture book favourite, this is the story of Mrs Large the elephant - who just needs five minutes of peace and quiet away from her boisterous children! So, taking refuge in the bathroom, she fills herself a hot, foamy bubble bath and takes in a tray of her favourite breakfast and the morning paper. But there's never a dull moment with the Larges, and it soon becomes clear that mum's quiet time is to be very short-lived! Family life is beautifully observed in this warm and funny modern classic from Jill Murphy, one of Britain's most treasured author-illustrators.
