AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A mystery guest. An errand for Mum. A forgetful elephant.

'Dad is bringing home a surprise visitor. When Mum realises she doesn’t have enough butter to bake the cakes for their mystery guest, Jimbo convinces her he’s old enough to go to the jungle store alone. On his way home he joins his friends in their cricket match on the road. With the butter safely tucked beneath his cap, he begins to play. It’s hot and the butter soon begins to melt. That doesn’t bother Jim. The bus heading their way does mean an end to play. But while Jimbo’s friends all dash off the road to safety, he trips on his untied shoe lace. Will he end up as elephant paste?'
