Emily Brown and her toy rabbit Stanley are on an adventure with their friend Matilda the elephant, but Matilda’s mummy will keep calling on the emergency telephones that crop up with surprising frequency and variety wherever they are as she is so anxious about her child. Matilda always answers tells her in no uncertain terms that her fears are unfounded. Then comes the moment when Matilda actually wants to speak to her mummy but she doesn’t answer… Neal Layton’s illustrations subtly show the duality of the locations of Emily and her companions’ adventures in their domestic and imaginative guises.
