The littlest always goes last. That’s the elephant rule. But Elphie really wants to go first. Luckily, he knows someone who can help. It’s you!

In this playful and engaging new story, Elphie is lining up with the other elephants to start the long march to the watering hole at the back of the book. As the littlest elephant, he has to go last. But Elphie reallly wants to go first and he enlists the help of the reader to help him move up the queue. He almost manages it until the biggest elephant shuffles everyone back to their proper positions just as they arrive at the watering hole. But the watering hole is already occupied by a very, very big and very, very selfish elephant. Elphie’s resourcefulness saves the day and on the long march home, the other elephants decide that Elphie should go . . .*SPOILER ALERT* . . . you’ll just have to read the book to find out!
