Bertil and the Bathroom Elephants
by Inger Lindahl
Age Range: 6-8
Bertil likes to splash a lot of water when he has a bath and he thinks itís fun when
two mischievous elephants join him. Their trunks can really spray the water everywhere!
After a while though, it gets too much even for Bertil and he longs to have
peace in the bathroom. Itís not Bertilís fault that the bathroom gets so wet but how
do you get rid of naughty bathroom elephants? Eventually a solution is found and
Bertil can sit in peace and quiet in his bathroom. This is a delightful story by Inger
Lindahl accompanied by charming, funny water-colour illustrations that will appeal
to any child that gets carried away while having a bath.
