Elmer’s Special Day

Publisher: Andersen

This is another classic Elmer story about the colourful patchwork elephant and his jungle antics. It's time for the annual Elmer's day celebrations and all the elephants are noisily painting themselves with wild colourful patterns in preparation for the parade.


There's just one problem: the other animals in the jungle are getting cross about all the noise the excited elephants are making and are starting to grumble amongst themselves.


Luckily Elmer has the clever idea of asking all the animals to join in with the fun and they soon forget their grumbles and everyone has a lovely time together. An attractive colourful picture book with a positive and inclusive message.
