Book Description

26 July 2005
If elephants wore trousers, what trousers would they wear? Would they be fluffy and pink, like my big sister's pair? A lively discussion should result from this humorous and vivid journey of the imagination. The colourful, atmospheric illustrations invite young readers to embark on an amazing dream-journey as each spread presents this engaging elephant in a different transformation. This wonderful and truly appealing book will be enjoyed by children and adults alike with its fresh and funny rhymes.

5.0 out of 5 stars If Elephants wore pants 30 Dec 2009

This is a great book. Our son loves it. The book seller was great, they under promise and over deliver.
4.0 out of 5 stars Dream Adventure for Kids 4 Oct 2005
By Davidoff Lung - Published on Amazon.com
After reading the book, I was attracted by the funny and colourful dream adventure. The illustrator was not only using the attractive pictures to arouse children interest, but also introduced colour names and descriptions to children through the elephant trousers. Thus it is not a book for children leisure only.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Book! 26 Oct 2004
By K. - Published on Amazon.com
This is a great book, a must have for children. Excellent illustrations and a great fun story. I bought it along with a bunch of great picture books for my kids when they're a bit older. But sick of our board books, I broke this one out for my 2 1/2 year old, and she loves it! I think it would be even better for kids a little older, maybe around 3-6, but even tiny ones can enjoy. And I know I enjoy it!
