Read full description of the books:
The Elephant and the Bad Baby is the classic story from Elfrida Vipont and Raymond Briggs.
The Elephant takes the Bad Baby for a ride and they go 'rumpeta, rumpeta, rumpeta down the road.' They help themselves to ice creams, pies, buns, crisps, biscuits, lollipops and apples, and the shopkeepers follow them down the road shouting and waving. All ends well as the Bad Baby learns to say 'Please' and his mother makes pancakes for everyone.
Elfrida Vipont worked as a teacher, singer and writer. She wrote over 30 books and won the Carnegie Medal in 1950 for Lark on the Wing. Raymond Briggs has produced wonderful children's books including the classic titles The Snowman, Father Christmas and When the Wind Blows - all made into immensely successful films. Raymond lives in Sussex.

Read information about the authorBorn in Manchester in 1902, Elfrida Vipont Brown was the daughter of devout Quakers, and was educated at Manchester High School, before studying history at Manchester University, and singing in Paris, London and Leipzig. She worked for a time as a professional singer (experience she would use in her books), married research technologist R.P. Foulds in 1929, and had four daughters. Vipont published her first book, Quakerism (1930), under her married name, E.V. Foulds, although she went on to use 'Elfrida Vipont' for her subsequent work. She was heavily involved in the field of Quaker education, serving as a Governor of Ackworth School - a Quaker institution founded in 1779, and to which many of her family were sent - as well as Headmistress of the Quaker Evacuation School at Yealand Manor, set up during World War II. Vipont wrote more than thirty books, including Weaver of Dreams, The Lark in the Morn, and The Elephant and the Bad Baby, finding success in all genres. She died in 1992.
