Jill Murphy is one of the UK's best-known author/illustrators. She wrote and illustrated her first book, The Worst Witch, while still only eighteen. Jill won the Smarties Prize for The Last Noo-noo in 1995. She lives in Bodmin, Cornwall.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-Mr. and Mrs. Large and their four children are back. This time Mrs. Large wants her husband to enjoy a quiet birthday evening at home. Her "helpful" children innocently impede her preparations for a special dinner-for-two, and then beg for a bedtime story as a reward for going to bed early. Finally leaving their exhausted parents dinnerless and sound asleep on the sofa, they trail off to bed quietly, taking Mr. and Mrs. Large's special repast with them. Another hilarious chapter in the elephant family's chronicles, this is a definite winner. The illustrations are first rate; especially priceless are the expressions on the elephants' faces. The text is full of humor and instantly recognizable as true to life; the story is a fine example of a happy, loving family. Not to be missed.
