Elephants in the Custard by Samuel Langley-Swain
Sol has an exciting dinner time when he finds elephants in his custard! He feels worried and wants to tell his family about them, but everyone looks too busy. As his worries begin to grow, Granny comes to the rescue... This story uses an imaginative twist on the ‘elephant in the room' metaphor to show the importance of making time to talk as a family.
Elephants in Custard is a playful and engaging story to help children talk about their worries and feelings when they find it really difficult to communicate. Children can often find it difficult to share their problems, even with family members who they can trust and worry can takes over, turning the smallest of things turn into very big dramas for little minds. Mealtimes can be a great place to address these worries when we can find time to sit down together and create magical family moments. This fun rhyming story is great for young readers aged 2-5.

Owlet Press was founded by Samuel Langley-Swain in 2018, working with authors and illustrators with a shared passion – picture books which reflect the true diversity in children’s lives. Focusing on the challenges children face today and packaging these big issues into inclusive and accessible stories for small readers to digest and discuss with friends, families and schools. This indie children’s book publisher aims to change the world one book at a time, along with the best authors and illustrators to tell these stories.
Owlet Press have always published books that are 'incidentally inclusive' from day one and look to push this further with every title. With authors and illustrators from all walks of life - diversity is the driving ethos within this publisher. Owlet believe that it is key for young readers of colour to see children like them (and for white, non-disabled children to see children that don't always look like them) in books experiencing the joy and magic of playful, imaginative stories - a belief that we share at Babipur.
