The Lovereading comment:
Cousins Elmer and Wilbur have never seen a pink elephant until they meet Rose, who is lost and is looking for her herd. So Elmer and Wilbur set out to find Rose’s herd and when they do they get a huge surprise. As one expects from David Mckee this is yet another wonderfully colourful story that toddlers will love to share with parents, and children just beginning to read will devour for themselves again and again and again.

SynopsisElmer and Rose by David Mckee
Grandpa Eldo asks Elmer and Wilbur to help a young elephant find her way back to her herd - and they get a shock when they see she is pink! No wonder she is called Rose. But there is an even greater surprise in store when they reach her herd - because everyone single one of them is pink!
ReviewsFor a well-constructed story and an instantly recognisable character, it's hard to beat Elmer the patchwork elephant.
