About the Author:

Jill Murphy is one of this country's best-known author/illustrators. She wrote and illustrated her first book, The Worst Witch, while still only eighteen, and won the Smarties Book Prize for The Last Noo-noo. Jill lives in Bodmin, Cornwall.

From Booklist:

Featuring a charming elephant clan, this Mr. Mom–style tale offers an affectionate, funny portrayal of a family's bumbling efforts to help a sick parent. Mr. Large prescribes bed rest for his under-the-weather wife, assuring her he'll take care of everything, from chores to fun. However, rest proves elusive as the dad and kids enthusiastically get busy. Baby awakens Mom by "giving her a thorough dusting" (and periodically requesting "a big huggy"), and who could sleep through all of those alarming vacuum-crunching sounds and kitchen smells? But the good intentions behind their efforts carry the day, which culminates with everyone cozying up in Mom's bed for snacks. The droll prose descriptively relates events and reactions, while chaotic, witty colored-pencil illustrations, in cheery hues and festive patterns, portray the characters in familiar environments, with amusing elephant-specific details. An entertaining read for parents and kids to enjoy together, especially for those who see their own family dynamics in Mrs. Large's crucial household role. Rosenfeld, Shelle
