Mumfie the elephant was one of my favourites as a child, he had many adventures with his friend Scarecrow.

My mum can't find our copies. My eldest DD's are approaching 4 years - any ideas what age it's suitable for?
Many thanks for any help.

Golly - I DO remember Mumfie. I wonder where ours have got to?

Have you googled or searched via abebooks?

Just done a quick search. It looks like the originals that I remember are from around 1975 by Katherine Tozer. There are some form 1995 by Britt Allcroft which look dreadful - not the lovely illustrations I remember. Abebooks have got both for sale.

Cheers all, I'll try abebooks. The originals I remember also had beautiful illustrations and 1975 sounds about right as my oldest brother would have been born a few years before..

The new ones do look dreadful don't they? I don't remember a tv series.

Anyone got any ideas on suitable age to start reading them?
