Description
Elmer, the patchwork elephant, has been a favorite of children around the world for decades. It's Christmas, and the young elephants are very excited for Papa Red's annual visit! All the presents are ready, but this year Elmer has a special treat in store for the young elephants--if they can keep quiet and out of sight. Illustrations.



About the Author
David McKee grew up in Devon, England. Later, while a student at Plymouth Art College, he began selling his cartoon drawings to newspapers. Since 1964 he has published a number of successful books for children, including the King Rollo stories, which he helped animate for British television. His first book for Lothrop was Snow Woman, of which Publishers Weekly said, "It is McKee's superb humor--conveyed almost solely in the illustrations...that wins the day." Of his second Lothrop book, Who's a Clever Baby, Publishers Weekly had this to say: "Grandma's alliterative frenzies are fascinating and readers will find Baby's manipulative stubbornness vastly amusing."

Mr. McKee enjoys traveling and doing books that "leave things unsaid."
