About the Author

David McKee's first book was published in 1964, and he is one of the leading contemporary children's book creators. His books are published in numerous languages throughout the world, and many of them have been adapted for television. He is best known as the creator of everyone's favourite patchwork elephant, Elmer! He now divides his time between London and the South of France.


PreS-K-Fans will welcome the return of a favorite character. Elmer, the patchwork elephant, volunteers to find Baby Elephant's lost teddy bear, which was left behind during a picnic. In the interim, Elmer kindly lends the youngster his own teddy. As Elmer searches, all of the animals he meets-tigers, lions, giraffes, and zebras-try to help. Finally, with the assistance of Wilbur, his checkerboard-colored cousin, Elmer finds Baby Elephant's bear and returns it. The familiar theme and the straightforward dialogue will delight children. The illustrations, saturated with bright colors and adorable baby animals, are perfect for the text. The pages are rich in detail and youngsters will enjoy finding fanciful birds, trees, and flowers in the jungle scenes. Elmer sends a positive message to children, showing them how to comfort with kindness when he parts with his own precious teddy bear to make Baby Elephant feel better.-Barbara Buckley, Jericho Public Library, NY Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
