About the Author

David McKee's first book was published in 1964. His books are now published in many languages throughout the world, and many of them have been adapted for television. He is one of the leading contemporary children's book creators.


Patchwork elephant Elmer is back and concerned about a pale "rainbow without colors." Planning to donate his own colors, Elmer seeks out the rainbow's end, along with several jungle animals that wonder what will happen to Elmer's colors if he gives them away. Elmer succeeds in giving the rainbow a boost of color, and happily his trademark checkerboard hide remains intact. The message-"Some things you can give and give and not lose any. Things like happiness or love or my colors"-lands with a bit of a thud, but ensures that Elmer will continue to brighten his friends' lives. Ages 4-9. (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

"Elmer, the big-hearted patchwork elephant, first appeared in 1989 but is still a firm favourite with the pre-school generation." * Glasgow Herald *
"It's worth buying Elmer books in hardcover because they tend to be read and re-read so much that the paperbacks will have lost their covers and pages long before your toddlers get bored of them!" * My Child *
