Join Elmer, everyone's favourite patchwork elephant, and his jungle band for a noisy day. The sound buttons are perfect for little fingers and help bring this charming Elmer story to life.
Elmer's Band A Press-Button Sound Book by David McKee
Poorly Wilbur has lost his voice, so to cheer him up Elmer decides to bring together all the jungle musicians to play in a band. Come with Elmer and Wilbur as they recruit each member of the band - from Lion with his huge roar to Frog with his little croak. Only when they are all gathered does Wilbur find out he's really important, even if he has lost his voice - his loud footsteps are the drum beat that will keep the whole band together.
