Elmer -

Elmer is a loveable, happy elephant. He is not like the other elephants in the jungle though; he is a patchwork elephant and all the colours of the rainbow. One day he is not sure that he wants to be different to all the others so he finds a way to paint himself elephant colour and sneaks back in amongst his friends. Soon he realises that it's boring being the same as everybody else so he gives everybody a huge surprise and reveals who he is. The other elephants find this so funny and now celebrate every year by decorating themselves in multicolours! Molly loves Elmer's vibrant patchwork colours and there is the subtle underlying message that it is good and healthy to not be exactly the same as all your friends.

Elmer -

A great book to read out loud, with colourful pictures. Importantly, the message that it's OK to be different and instead should be celebrated is brilliant. A must for any child's library.

Elmer the elephant -

It was just amazing and I could not believe how much my little boy loved it. Credit to David McKee on his creative books. I can recommend it to anybody who thinks of a book for their little ones.
