"Jill Murphys latest insightful snapshot of parenthood is a thumpingly entertaining picture book about elephants, and us." — THE SUNDAY TIMES (London)
Mrs. Large isnt feeling well, so Mr. Large sends her back to bed. "Ill take charge," he says. So while he and the children get busy vacuuming, dusting, and tidying, Mrs. Large settles down for a nice rest. But somehow ("I want my mommy!") Mrs. Larges restful day (Whats that burning smell?) is not as restful as shed hoped. Wise moms, well-meaning dads, and their spirited offspring will all laugh in recognition at this droll, expressively illustrated story.
