SynopsisElmer and the Wind by David Mckee
Aided and abetted by his ventriloquist cousin Wilbur, Elmer pretends to be blown away on the windiest day. They make fools of the other elephants, but when the laughter dies down, Elmer reassures them that a heavy elephant is safe in the worst of gales. When he tries to prove it, much to his surprise, he really does get blown away!
ReviewsA delightful book for small children, featuring a much-loved character and with the usual excellent, colourful illustrations we have come to expect from the Elmer books. School Librarian Bright and very funny pictures enhance beautifully judged writing: children and adults greeted this book with delight. Child Education Elmer is up to his tricks again in this hilarious tale. T.E.S. McKee's unpredictable storyline and familiar bright artwork make this another winner for Elmer fans.
