Author(s): James Thorp + Angus Mackinnon
Edward Lear meets 'Yellow Submarine' in this superb new picture book with rhyming text creating a verbal game of cause and effect, while the illustrations give it a surreal twist. It starts with an 'oops', a 'look out' and a 'crash' then in walks Father Giant with his quivering moustache...Someone has smashed Father Giant's favourite elephant. It wasn't Olive and her brother Grub. Nor was it the naughty newt, the laughing lady or the yucky yak. So WHO is the culprit? A magnificently madcap mystery that will keep readers guessing until the very end.
