If you ask me, THE ELEPHANT AND THE BAD BABY written by Elfrida Vipont and illustrated by Raymond Briggs is the story of baby taken for a ride by a bad elephant. Every time the elephant stretched out his trunk something was stolen and the two of them were chased by a disgruntled merchant as they went rumpeta, rumpeta, rumpeta, all down the road. Finally the baby's fault was declared... "He never once said please!" That is bad. But he quickly learned his lesson... "And the Bad Baby said, "PLEASE! I want to go home to my mother." I loved the Bad Baby's mother's reception!
