A slightly annoying elephant, of course! One day Sam gets a very big surprise as a tired, hungry, antique-loving, cycling enthusiast elephant turns up on his doorstep. Adopting an elephant at the zoo turned out to be a lot more than he bargained for as he didn’t realise the elephant would actually come to live with him – silly boy!

This hilarious story by comedian and author David Walliams and illustrated by Tony Ross, is brought to life through puppetry.

Based on the original book The Slightly Annoying Elephant written by David Walliams and illustrated by Tony Ross. Illustrations © Tony Ross 2013. Licensed by HarperCollins Children’s Books.
