The Slightly Annoying Elephant: Review and Giveaway

Posted by


One of the most important things you can do with your children is read.

I had a conversation with some of my friends last night about books we read as children, and I was surprised at the warm and comforting nostalgia I felt when I cast my mind back all of those yearsย those few years. It got me to thinking about what books my children will be able to look back on when they’re older.

We were recently sent a copy of David Walliams’ new book, The Slightly Annoying Elephant.


Aimed at children aged 3 and over, I sat down to read this with my youngest son who has just turned three. As it happens, both boys absolutely loved the story and found it highly amusing.

The illustrations in The Slightly Annoying Elephant are pure brilliance. Tony Ross really bring the book to life and gives the words in the book the visual support they deserve.



A simple storyline, a large helping of humour and a dash of wild imagination make this book a sure fire favourite for children. We absolutely adored it but I found it far too much fun to keep to ourselves and gave it to my son’s nursery school. My son’s teacher was thrilled with it (she had been waiting for it to be released!) and it’s already a firm favourite at story time.

The Slightly Annoying Elephant is available from Amazon.

For more information please visit World of Walliamsย – it’s a great site. On it you can find an activity pack to accompany this fun and attention-grabbing book, giving you lots to talk about even after the story has ended.

  1. I commented on STOP the Silence on Domestic Violence (very shocking) and very apt considering it’s nearly Christmas and the worst time for year for this xx
