THE ELEPHANT
AND THE BAD BABY
(1969)


     author:  Elfrida Vipont
illustrator:  Raymond Briggs
publisher:  Puffin Books

___________________________________________________________________  

An elephant offers a ride to a bad baby but their trip through town causes
havoc and ends with them being chased 'rumpeta, rumpeta, rumpeta, all
down the road' by an increasing number of disgruntled traders...

This is fun. It's very similar to the classic tale of 'Chicken Licken'.
The naughty twosome are pursued by an ice-cream man, a pork
butcher, a baker, a snack bar man, a grocer and a lady from
a sweet shop...
