If you haven’t met Elmer the elephant then you’d best get acquainted with him now for there are quite a few books in the series to keep you entertained. Elmer by David McKee is book 1 and was actually first published in the UK in 1968. Elmer is one original elephant, from his patchwork exterior to his “cheeky” ways.
Fun for elephant lovers of all ages!
What will Elmer the patchwork elephant do when he finds himself amongst a herd of elephants “all different” yet all the same “elephant color”? “Elmer was not elephant color.” On his walk in the jungle Elmer finds just what he thinks he needs to transform himself. How would the herd react? What would Elmer do to make them laugh? When the elephants decide to dedicate a special day to Elmer it is Elmer, whose own uniqueness plays a special part, ultimately holds the most influence over them all!
