Meet Wellington - the little elephant with BIG ideas - in this irresistible story about family and growing up from acclaimed picture book creator, Steve Small.
When Wellington is given a new jacket exactly like Dad’s for his birthday, at first he’s delighted. But his delight turns to disappointment when he tries it on and it’s far too big. And what if, Wellington thinks, – even worse! – it’s not that the jacket is too big, but that he’s too small? Well, Wellington’s dad has a plan, and on an exciting day out that takes in a ride on the bus, a super-size strawberry sundae, a toot on a tuba and a visit to his grandad, Wellington learns that he’s growing up exactly as fast as he should be – and just like his dad.
