Meet Elmer — every child's favorite patchwork elephant!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-These books feature a colorful patchwork elephant in their title subjects. Elmer's winsome personality shines through as he romps with a variety of wild animals from all over the world-polar bears and leopards, elephants and kangaroos-in this jungle fantasyland. Elmer's Friends, the most sophisticated of the four, leaves readers with the message that we can be different and still get along. The other texts are fairly generic, according to the concept depicted; most of the illustrations, done in bold, textured paints, are appealing and will encourage responses from toddlers. Solid choices for the board-book set.-Linda Wicher, Highland Park Public Library, IL

Meet the Author

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."

I bought this book for my daughter when she was a baby. It very quickly became a favorite due to the bright colors and simple language. She was so entranced by the contrasting colors, we would open the book and set it on the floor next to her when she was on her back. As she grew, I read it to her over and over, and soon had it memorized. It is a good bedtime story because it ends with Elmer falling asleep. Some stores sell the stuffed elephant to go with the book. In fact, I just recently bought both of them for my newborn nephew. Great baby shower gift!
