Product Description

Poor Elmer---the other elephants are laughing at him because he's covered in bright patchwork. He's sure that if he were the same color as they are, they'd stop making fun of him. That would make him feel better, wouldn't it? Your children will love McKee's engaging tale about the gift of individuality!

Publisher's Description

"McKee's gentle humor and love of irony are in full force in this celebration of individuality and laughter." —Publishers Weekly

Elmer the elephant is bright-colored patchwork all over. No wonder the other elephants laugh at him!

If he were ordinary elephant color, the others might stop laughing. That would make Elmer feel better, wouldn't it? David McKee's comical fable about everyone’s favorite patchwork elephant teaches readers to be themselves and celebrates the power of laughter.

This board book edition has sturdy, thick pages, perfect for the youngest readers.

Author Bio

David McKee grew up in Devon, England. Later, while a student at Plymouth Art College, he began selling his cartoon drawings to newspapers. Since 1964 he has published a number of successful books for children, including the King Rollo stories, which he helped animate for British television. His first book for Lothrop was Snow Woman, of which Publishers Weekly said, "It is McKee's superb humor--conveyed almost solely in the illustrations...that wins the day." Of his second Lothrop book, Who's a Clever Baby, Publishers Weekly had this to say: "Grandma's alliterative frenzies are fascinating and readers will find Baby's manipulative stubbornness vastly amusing."

Mr. McKee enjoys traveling and doing books that "leave things unsaid."
