Kirsty Jenkins adores the allotment her grandfather lovingly tends and, just before he dies, he asks Kirsty to look after it for him. But when horrible Mr Thomas from the council insists it must go to the next person on the waiting list, Kirsty is determined to find a way to keep her promise.

After pleading with Mr Thomas and demonstrating at the council offices, Kirsty and her half-siblings undertake their most daring plan of all: to 'borrow' the stuffed elephant from the museum that Mr Thomas loves so much, in a last-ditch attempt to gain his attention and understanding.

Perhaps this risky ruse might also shake Kirsty's dad from the quiet sadness he has fallen into ever since her grandfather died. A warm and funny story about marrows, peas, families (aargh!) and one very special elephant. Download and start listening now!

    " Quite an interesting story. I was surprised that it is based on a true-life story. I imagine kids would love this book, especially as it deals with issues that people dont really like to talk about much (bereavement). "

    " ! really loved the opening chapter in particular - the description of Kirsty in the pea wigwam thinking she might have to eat her fellow explorers was great! A really fun read! "
