Synopsis

Elmer's Special Day by David Mckee

It's almost Elmer Day again for the elephants, and they have begun their preparations already. But in all the excitement they are making an awful lot of noise, and upsetting the other animals. So Elmer changes the rules, and invites every single animal to join in the parade. And they have a surprise in store for Elmer.
