How strangers can become friends is the theme of this entertaining story about Elmer, everyone’s favourite patchwork elephant and this edition comes complete with audio CD. This time, Elmer and his friends in the jungle help Kangaroo find out that he can jump after all. At first the Kangaroos seem strange but soon, everyone in the jungle is used to them and they all become good friends. Books featuring the wonderfully colourful elephant called Elmer are essential bedroom companions. The CD is read by Ray Brooks and comes complete with original music and sound effects. Perfect for toddlers. To see other Elmer titles click here.
