Elmer is not your regular elephant. He is patchwork and he is funny. But sometimes being different can be tiring but that’s what his friends love him for.
Elmer disguises as himself in elephant colour and made all the elephants laughed when they found out it was him. From that day on, they celebrated Elmer Day every year where all the other elephants dressed up and Elmer dressed up in elephant colour.
A book that celebrates diversity in a fun way. And somehow, the seriousness of elephants are ironically funny. And kids love them.
