Elmer by David Mckee
A modern classic, this picture book is known to millions, and continues to be one of the biggest selling picture books ever, having sold over 2 million copies around the world. The subtle message is that it is OK to be different, and combined with the vibrant colour and cheeky humour of the main character, it’s an essential bedtime story.
Every child should get to know Elmer the patchwork elephant. Riveting Reads
Elmer is a treat not to be missed. WHS Showcase
When I picked up this book, it was like bumping into an old friend - definitely as good second time around. -- Diane Brown Child Education
A deserved favourite with the 2-5s Sunday Times
