The Lovereading4Kids comment
Elmer, the well-loved hero of so many titles, is back for a charming new adventure among the whales. Elmer and his cousin Wilbur set off to the sea to catch a glimpse of the whales as their grandfather did before them. When the crocodiles suggest travelling along the river by raft the young elephants think it is a brilliant idea! Soon the raft is travelling dangerously fast! How will Elmer and Wilbur stay safe? Luckily, they reach the sea and the kind whales look after them.
