Big beast. Big city. BIG TROUBLE.
When an Ice Age mammoth finds himself in a modern day city, he's not at all sure what to make of this huge, gleaming forest. Strange birds in the sky, strange beetles on the ground and strange, shouty cavemen.
Is he the only mammoth in the WORLD?
A warm and and endearing story about finding your herd and a place to trumpet wildly from much-loved author Anna Kemp and exciting new illustrator, Adam Beer.
