An exquisite first novel from acclaimed picture book author and illustrator Peter Carnavas about Olive, Dad and his elephant.

Your dad won’t fix your bike – until you fix your dad.

Olive’s father has a sadness so big that she imagines it as an enormous elephant following him around. Every day Olive sees the elephant, and every day she wishes it would go.

With the help of Grandad and her best friend, Arthur, Olive sets out to chase the elephant away.

But how can Olive move something so big?
