January 2014 Book of the Month Best-selling Elmer, the only patchwork coloured elephant in the jungle, loves playing with his friends. This time, Elmer teams up with Snake to outwit all the elephants and all the other animals who want to play a trick on him. Elmer is looking pale. Is he really poorly as the elephants think? It could be that Snake is helping him. But Snake is playing tricks of his own! Luckily, everyone can enjoy the last laugh!
