I fell in love with it from the first picture - all the grey elephants standing together with a rich green background. This heavyweight etching paper has a fine surface texture and is one of the most popular media worldwide for higher quality artwork printing. The grey elephants all love him, but he soon starts to wonder what it would be like to be just the same as them. Elmer the Patchwork Elephant” by David McKee was originally published in 1968, and has been in print ever since. Its message of celebrating diversity and uniqueness is just as topical today as it was when celebrated author David McKee first created Elmer .

The book beautifully teaches the difference between people and how being unique is not such a bad thing. The primal focus of the story is on ‘Elmer ‘who is an elephant that does not resemble the other elephants in his herd.It's a great one for children who are scared of the dark, and it's perfect for bedtime and settling down for the night.

This charming, funny picture book shows the boy realising that everything is OK – and thinking of all the advantages of this new point of view. This World Book Day, come on a brand new adventure with Elmer the patchwork elephant and discover the joy of telling, sharing, and making up stories!Todos los elefantes se empiezan a revolcar de la risa y a festejarle el chiste a Elmer, quedando de allí en mas ese día marcado como el día de Elmer.
