"The Famishing Vanishing Mahoosive Mammoth" by Hollie Hughes and blog fave Leigh Hodgkinson is a hilarious romp with a pair of adorable characters at its heart. Bug and Mammoth are the best of friends but poor Mammoth always seems to be hungry and can't stop thinking about food. One morning he wakes up feeling a little bit wibbly and feint. Mammoth is so hungry he feels like he's literally fading away to nothing, so a hearty breakfast is what's required.
It's not long though before Mammoth is feeling hungry again so brunch is called for, then lunch, perhaps a mid-afternoon snack! The more mammoth eats, the less satisfied he seems to be, and soon it's a non-stop guzzle-a-thon as Mammoth starts to eat just about everything in sight. Can Bug help his friend take his mind off food, and focus on something more fun before it's too late?
A pacy and fun story, "The Famishing Vanishing Mahoosive Mammoth" is tummy-rumblingly great, published by Bloomsbury Publishing.
