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.
