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.

Elmer and his cousin Wilbur decide to go to the coast to see the whales. But their journey becomes far more of an adventure then they expected, when they find themselves lost at sea. Can the whales help them back to shore?
