Julia Eccleshare's comment:
Elmer the multi-coloured elephant is one of the best-loved characters of children’s fiction. Now it is nearly time for the visit of the magical Papa Red and, always kind and thoughtful, this time Elmer helps to make Christmas magical for all the young elephants – and to get presents to children who need them most. David McKee’s elephant world and especially the charming Elmer are as delightful as ever.Who is Julia Eccleshare ?
SynopsisElmer and Papa Red by David Mckee
It's two days before the annual visit of Papa Red and the young elephants are very excited. They choose a tree to decorate and prepare the presents for Papa Red to collect during the night to take to those who need them. But this year Elmer has a special treat in store for the young elephants, if they can keep quiet and out of sight...
ReviewsEvery child should get to know Elmer the patchwork elephant.
-- Riveting Reads SLA 3-6
