"Elmer the colourful patchwork elephant has been a nursery favourite since this first book was published in 1989. A modern classic, this picture book is known to millions, and continues to be the strongest seller of the whole series, 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, this large format edition is a celebration of its continued popularity."
Elmer's first story, with special foiled and embossed cover and free audiobook
"Unquestionably the life and soul of the party. I loved this book from the first time I read it." Exepose "Its message of celebrating diversity and uniqueness is just as topical today as it was when celebrated author David McKee first created Elmer." Junior Magazine "This board book edition is everything you would hope for... perfect." The Bookbag "A deserved favourite with the 2-5s." The Sunday Times "A wonderfully upbeat and powerful tale that celebrates the uniqueness of the individual - and provides one of literature's best-loved characters too." Junior
