Five Minutes' Peace Mixed media product
by Jill Murphy
Illustrated by Jill Murphy
Part of the Large Family series
A book and CD edition of a family picture book favourite, this is the story of Mrs Large the elephant - who just needs five minutes of peace and quiet away from her boisterous children!
So, taking refuge in the bathroom, she fills herself a hot, foamy bubble bath and takes in a tray of her favourite breakfast and the morning paper.
But there's never a dull moment with the Larges, and it soon becomes clear that mum's quiet time is to be very short-lived!
Read aloud by award-winning actress Miriam Margoyles, family life is beautifully observed in this warm and funny modern classic from Jill Murphy, one of Britain's most treasured author-illustrators.
