The Lovereading4Kids comment

Elmer and Wilbur are cousins and they get along just fine, both of them playing tricks on each other all the time. What fun they have even when Elmer feels Wilbur is getting a bit too big for his boots and brings him back to earth in more ways than one. Great humour and a wonderful story coupled with the most vibrant illustrations you’ll find in any book. To see other Elmer titles click here

Synopsis

Elmer and Wilbur by David Mckee

Elmer loves practical jokes, but so does his cousin Wilbur. Until, that is, Elmer has an idea which brings Wilbur back down to earth, in more ways than one.

Reviews

The joys of this book are as much the unpredictable storyline as the loony pictures. Evening Standard Wonderful...sumptuously vivid...exquisitely expressive...will be adored by every child. School Librarian
