What’s big, blue, bossy, and turns up uninvited?

A slightly annoying elephant, of course! One day Sam gets a very big surprise as a tired, hungry, antique-loving, cycling enthusiast elephant turns up on his doorstep. Adopting an elephant at the zoo turned out to be a lot more than he bargained for as he didn’t realise the elephant would actually come to live with him – silly boy!

This hilarious story by comedian and author David Walliams is brought to life through puppetry.

The Slightly Annoying Elephant is aimed at ages 3 – 8.
