In Eric's house there were too many elephants – in the living room, in the kitchen, in the bathroom, even in his bedroom!

The elephants take up a lot of space, but Eric loves every one of them. So when his mum says they have to go, Eric comes up with a clever solution to a very BIG problem . . .

From the creators of The Terrible Plop comes this delightfully energetic story, full of fun and exuberance.

About the Author

Ursula Dubosarsky is widely regarded as one of the most talented and original writers in Australia today. She is the author of many outstanding books, both for young adults and for children, and has won numerous awards for excellence. Abyssinia was winner of the 2004 South Australian Festival Award for Literature and was also shortlisted for NSW Premier's Literary Awards and the Queensland Premier's Literary Award. In 2006 Theodora's Gift won both the NSW and Victorian Premier's Awards. Ursula has a PhD in English literature from Macquarie University and lives in Sydney with her family.

Her recent collaboration at Penguin with Tohby Riddle for The Word Spy and Return of the Word Spy, both of which also won major national awards, is already proving how prescient an author she is, with the current emphasis swinging back to teaching the basics of grammar in primary school.

        Comments about Too Many Elephants in this House:

        I used this delightful story about Eric and his Elephants to teach the Kindergarten up to Year 2 students about the Super3 (PLAN-DO-REVIEW) the information seeking and problem-solving process.

        Eric has a problem... how does he go about solving it?
