Review quote

"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 "A deserved favourite with the 2-5s." The Sunday Times "A wonderfully upbeat and powerful tale that celebrates the uniqueness of the individual - and provides one of literature's best-loved characters too." Junior
