Best-selling Elmer the patchwork elephant is back for a new adventure. All the animals in the jungle are terrified! There is a strange roaring noise and no one knows what it can be. Soon, all the animals are stampeding as far away from it as possible. All except for Elmer… Bravely, Elmer sets out to find the source of the noise. And makes a very surprising discovery. A great new adventure for Elmer and his animal friends.
Elmer, everyone's favourite patchwork elephant, is 25!
