All the elephants in the world are grey, but Elmer is different. He is a bright colored patchwork elephant.
You may guess where this story is going in David McKee's "Elmer: The Story of a Patchwork Elephant". The first Elmer book for toddlers published in 1989 became popular and many have followed.
Now in 2018, there is on the marketplace, 40 Elmer titles, a TV series in England, and board books for younger book lovers. There is even a colorful Elmer plush to cuddle while the Elmer books are being read.
Young listeners will want to hear Elmer's story over and over. The books illustrated by the author in rich colors and motifs will occupy a treasured place in the family libraries.
