"If you are not familiar with these stories, you really have not lived ... you just couldn't get better" Guardian 


A stunning 30th anniversary 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
