With his trunk in a grump, Ernest the French elephant grumps and humphs his way through a charming (yet rather doleful) nonsense poem written and illustrated by The Original Poet Lizzie Mole.
This original rhyming poem print would be perfect for a nursery or child’s bedroom. It would also make a great bedtime story and one for kids to learn by heart.

All our poems are printed on the highest quality archival papers from heritage paper merchant GF Smith.
The fine-grain smooth art paper is 240gsm and has been selected specifically for our printing and foiling, to ensure a beautiful finish.

Our frames are handmade in Brighton by a highly skilled framer specialising in hand-finishing. We've chosen a simple hand-painted white wooden frame to complement our poem prints.
The frame has been designed with a recess, which means there is a space between the the print and the glazing. This creates a professional gallery-style finish, not found in high street frames.
The frame is made from sustainably sourced pine and is glazed with picture grade acrylic.

Monsieur E. Le-Phant,
the french heffalant,
was grumpy, his trunk pointed down.
His bed was so lumpy
(he felt it was bumpy)
his sad trunk was just like a frown.
This sad heffalump,
with his trunk in a grump,
looked grumpily humpfy to me.
His humpfing and grumping
was really quite something,
the grumpiest flumper you'd see.
But though such a grump,
this big heavy lump,
a french elephlump as I've said,
would dump being grumpy
cause he was uncomfy,
and go out and buy a new bed.
