9780099697206: Elmer: The Story of a Patchwork Elephant

Elmer has been a nursery favourite since this first book was published in 1989. A modern classic, this picture book continues to be the strongest seller of the whole series.
The subtle message in Elmer 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.
