This is a modern picture-book classic - there's never a dull moment with the Large family! When Mrs Large decides she is too fat, she puts the whole family on a diet. Biscuits and crisps are out; healthy meals and healthy jogs are in. But for hungry elephants, dieting is definitely not a piece of cake! "The Large Family" series has sold nearly four million copies worldwide.
