Everyone's favorite patchwork elephant is back in Elmer and Butterfly by David McKee. When Elmer helps Butterfly get out of a hole blocked by a fallen branch, he doubts that she will be able to return the favor. Then Elmer wanders onto a narrow path and becomes trapped in a cave. With Butterfly's help, Elmer's cousin Wilbur and the other elephants mount a rescue. This story reminiscent of the fable of "The Lion and the Mouse" but also includes McKee's own brand of writing and humor. Butterfly reminds readers that even the smallest animals can help a friend in need. McKee's signature style includes high contrast and sharp detail on every page along with easy to read text. Bold colors and whimsical illustrations make this an excellent read-aloud choice, while longer text selections on each page make this book ideal for older storytime attendees as well. *A more condensed version of this review appeared in an issue of School Library Journal from which it can be seen in various sites online*
