Ready, Steady, Jump!

By Jeanne Willis
Illustrated by Adrian Reynolds

A glorious and funny celebration of individuality from the bestselling creators of Who's in the Loo?

When the other baby animals laugh at Elephant for not being able to jump, he sets out to prove them wrong. But hard as he tries, he just can't jump. Then he realises that he is able to do something that no other animal can – his strong, long trunk can make him a hero.

  • From the creators of Who's in the Loo? which has sold more than 150,000 copies in the UK
  • Who's in the Loo? won the Sheffield Children's Book Award and the Red House Picture Book Award
  • Adrian Reynolds illustrates the best-selling Harry and the Dinosaur books, now a popular animation series.
