You can't take an elephant on the bus ...It would simply cause a terrible fuss! Elephants' bottoms are heavy and fat and would certainly squash the seats quite flat.

This wonderful, riotous romp of a book, complete with hilarious rhymes and ingenious illustrations will have children (and adults) in splits.

While it may seem common sense never to put a camel in a sailing boat, or that it would be a bad idea to put a tiger on a train, and simply preposterous to put a whale on a bicycle...that is exactly what happens in this hilarious book.

Cover to cover, this amusing picture book is filled with animals causing mayhem as they attempt to travel in the most unsuitable vehicles.

"Delightfully brought to life with David Tazzyman's quirky illustrations and a jaunty rhyming text. You will laugh out loud as tigers ride on trains, whales ride on bikes and giraffes go on aeroplanes." - Publishers Association.

Patrick Clevland-Peck is a children's author whose previous works include, The Story of Tutenkhamun and The Queen's Spaghetti. David Tazzyman is the illustrator of the bestselling Mr Gum books

You will laugh out loud - Guardian

‘… delightfully brought to life with David Tazzyman’s quirky illustrations and a jaunty rhyming text. You will laugh out loud as tigers ride on trains, whales ride on bikes and giraffes go on aeroplanes’ - Publishers Association

The bold, caricature style illustrations, rhyming couplets, and varying font styles add to the humour - Practical Pre-School

Everything that you could wish for in a picture book, humour, ridiculous situations and imagination stimulating scenarios. Quite frankly, this is picture book writing and illustration at its very best - Being a Mummy

David Tazzyman’s scratchy style is a great match to this scatty surprising picture book’ - Books for Keeps

Chaotic, crazy, fabulously funny and full of humorously energetic illustrations, this is a book that promises to evoke giggles of glee from readers fortunate enough to come across it - Eye, Eye
