The Elephant and the Bad Baby

The Elephant and the Bad Baby
Elfrida Vipont 1969
Illustrated by Raymond Briggs

An elephant takes a bad baby for a ride where he steals all sorts of treats and has the ice cream man, the baker, the butcher and others chasing after him. In the end he learns to say please and has his mother cook everyone pancakes. The pictures are fun and the story is ridiculous. It's a great book to read aloud.
