A great birthday gift for Dad, this is a beautiful new edition of a Kate Greenaway-shortlisted story of family life in the bestselling Large series. It's Mr Large the elephant's birthday and Mrs Large is planning a nice, quiet night in – a night for just the two of them. But even with the children washed and in their pyjamas before half past four, the night doesn't unfold quite to plan! With a foreword and gorgeous foil on the cover and spine, this is a beautiful book to treasure.
