Summary
When Mr. Large the elephant tells his ill wife he will take care of the family while she rests in bed, she finds it difficult to relax with all the commotion in the house. Simultaneous.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: "Jill Murphy’s latest insightful snapshot of parenthood is a thumpingly entertaining picture book about elephants, and us." — THE SUNDAY TIMES (London)

Mrs. Large isn't feeling well, so Mr. Large sends her back to bed. "I'll take charge," he says. So while he and the children get busy vacuuming, dusting, and tidying, Mrs. Large settles down for a nice rest. But somehow ("I want my mommy!") Mrs. Large’s restful day (What’s that burning smell?) is not as restful as she'd hoped. Wise moms, well-meaning dads, and their spirited offspring will all laugh in recognition at this droll, expressively illustrated story.
