Under the Table

Jul 2, 2024

Written by: Allan Ahlberg

Illustrated by: Bruce Ingman

Nothing is what it seems–and anything can happen–when the hilarious team of Allan Ahlberg and Bruce Ingman sneak a peek under the table.

What do you do when you’re having an ordinary day, only to discover there’s a big gray elephant (named Nathaniel) under the table? Why, you get him to help you wash the car! And the kangaroo (named Abigail) that appears under that same table can help bring in groceries. But when there are penguins in the fridge, the forks and knives are running around, and the salt and ketchup are acting up, there is only one thing to do: pack everyone in the camper and go on vacation! With a wink and a nod, Allan Ahlberg and Bruce Ingman reunite for another wry, comical, zany adventure starring the family introduced in The Runaway Dinner and The Pencil.
