Overview

Elmer and the Race – Picture Book

The young elephants want to prove who is the fastest, so Elmer and Wilbur organise a race. Each decorated a different colour, the racers set off around the course and discover things about themselves – Blue may be first and Orange second, but White is kind, Pink and Violet are funny and Yellow is a cheat. Luckily Yellow also learns he is very good at saying sorry, so each young elephant gets a medal from Elmer.

Elmer the colourful patchwork elephant has been a nursery favourite since this first book was published in 1989. This colourful picture book is known to millions and it’s subtle message – that it is OK to be different – has made this first tale about everyone’s favourite patchwork elephant a classic must-read for every bookshelf.
