Description

An exquisite first novel from acclaimed picture book author and illustrator Peter Carnavas about Olive, Dad and his elephant.




‘An elephant?’ Arthur gasped. ‘In your house? But... is it real?’


Olive leaned a little closer and lowered her voice.

‘Well, that's the thing . . . ’


Olive’s father has a sadness so big that she imagines it as a large grey elephant following him around. With the help of her cheery grandfather and her best friend, Arthur, Olive sets out to chase away her father’s elephant.


Beautifully written, this novel from acclaimed author and illustrator Peter Carnavas will stay with you long after you finish.
