Emily Brown, Stanley the bunny and Matilda the elephant are busy going on adventures, but every time they get to a particularly exciting part . . . Ring! Ring! goes the Emergency Telephone and it’s Matilda’s mummy on the end worrying that Matilda isn’t wearing her wellies, or eating properly or almost anything. How can Emily Brown persuade her that sometimes adventures are good?

This brilliant title from this award-winning team is a witty and poignant book about the importance of spending quality time with your children and allowing them to explore the world around them.
