Unquestionably the life and soul of the party. I loved this book from the first time I read it. * Exepose * Its message of celebrating diversity and uniqueness is just as topical today as it was when celebrated author David McKee first created Elmer. * Junior Magazine * This board book edition is everything you would hope for... perfect. * The Bookbag *
