Review

When Baby Elephant loses his teddy and can't sleep, Elmer lends him his own, promising to help find the lost one.

As he searches the forest for the missing bear he discovers that each of the baby animals there has a teddy which is special for them.

McKee's Elmer has now dazzled young and old in more than a dozen books for nearly 20 years, and the message throughout has been to celebrate difference.

In this republication of a 1999 title, McKee shows young readers that we each have special things which nobody else loves quite as we do. As ever, the pages are alive with vivid colour and pattern, and we meet old friends from other Elmer books.
