Description

You see, there was a time when Elephant had no nose. He was big, he was clumsy and he was very, very SMELLY! Brilliantly colourful Tingatinga artwork tells the story of Elephant's transformation from a smelly, dirty beast with a short stubby nose into his glorious Tinga Tinga persona. Featuring the colourful cast of Tinga Tinga animals, when Elephant's nose gets 'snapped' by grumpy Crocodile it is stretched and stretched until it is a very useful long wiggly nose indeed! TERRUMPETT!
