A slightly annoying elephant, of course!

Very very short

What disappointed you about The Slightly Annoying Elephant?

Why would anybody want to purchase a story that only lasts 8 minutes!? To be fair this was my fault for not checking the time length but really, what is the point of a story that by the time I sat down with a glass of wine in my hand there were shouts of 'mummy! The story's stopped!'

Has The Slightly Annoying Elephant put you off other books in this genre?

No, but don't like wasting money on something that only lasts a few minutes!
