Don't Say Elephant!

Don't Say Elephant!

Discover the hilariously silly picture book


Discover the brand new story from Stuart Heritage!

Introducing brothers, Pancakes and Cha-Cha.

Pancakes and Cha-Cha are set for a perfect day of pizza and playing in the park... when they are surprised by a genie granting wishes!

What in the whole wide world will they wish for? Treasure or magical powers? Or a pizza the size of a paddling pool? Or maybe - just maybe - they'll be surprised by something unexpected.

Stuart Heritage and Nicola Slater, creators of the laugh-out-loud Jonathan the Magic Pony, are back with a warm-hearted, bedtime story about brotherly love, the art of compromise and an elephant covered in cheese.
