Elephant hiding behind a tree
Category: Bookbug

I thought I saw an...elephant! by Ruth Symons and Lydia Nichols 

ISBN: 9781783707119


This silly but stylish slider book is sure to make little ones laugh! They'll love joining in with a game of hide-and-seek as they move the sliders to reveal the elephant hiding in every scene. Is it behind the tree? Or on the slide? Just push the slider to find out! Perfect for inquistive little hands. 

'Elephants are my favourite animal so I was immediately drawn to this book because of that –and then I realised how much fun this book was! Each page is a hide-and-seek game with the elephant, using sliders to discover where the elephant is. I love the illustrations as well. It may be for children, but this 38 year old was giggling throughout the book! Fun for all the family to share.'
