What does a young man bequeathed £500 and an elephant with a taste for liquor do? Adrian Rookwhistle thought he had the answer - he'd give her to a circus. But it wasn't so easy. Together Adrian and Rosy cut a swathe of terror and destruction through the peaceful countryside of Southern England. Drunk or sober, Rosy spread chaos in her wake, till her hapless victims invoked the full majesty of the law against her.

    " this is a book that kindled my love of reading - if I remember correctly it was read to us in 3rd grade along with I can jump puddles "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judith | 9/8/2013

    " Wow! Gerald Durrell is awesome. This book had me ROFL! Do not read this book in public! "

    " The love of a good pachyderm is a rare and wonderful thing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeannie Colling | 7/2/2013

    " I love these books by Gerald Durrell. They are well written and hysterically funny. This is a mostly true story about a young man who inherits an elephant, who has a penchant for drink, from his uncle. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason Horger | 6/25/2013

    " There's a great deal of fun in this farcical adventure across the south of England, involving a hapless fellow and the elephant he inherits... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 June | 4/16/2013

    " Adrian inherits his Uncle's Elephant, with resulting adventures. Had me laughing out loud. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Walter Weary | 3/24/2013

    " A lovely, madcap wander across England with an elephant in tow. Read it to my kids while often stopping to roar with laughter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane | 1/23/2013

    " Absolutely hilarious and utterly charming but definitely not one to read on public transport. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ambica Rajagopal | 1/17/2013

    " oh man...my mom gave me this in 8th class...i think i need a new copy, mine now resides in a ziplock bag to keep it together... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leonie | 10/11/2012

    " I first read this book at the age of fifteen. I reached the "ballroom" scene during a silent reading period at school - and nearly exploded trying not to laugh out loud. Needless to say, this book has been a favourite for many years, read and reread. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gordon | 8/16/2012

    " Even though the drinking jokes get tiresome this is still a very funny book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barbara | 4/14/2012

    " I admire and enjoy the nature writing of Gerald Durrell. However, as a novelist, his style is forced, the humor is tiresome, and the plot is tedious. There were a few cute moments, however, in this tale of Rosy, the elephant with a penchant for cherry brandy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 4/11/2012

    " A classic work of British light humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yn | 3/28/2012

    " Funny read. For a younger a reader. "
