Written by David McKee

Illustrated by David McKee

LoveReading View on Elmer: Guess Who?

As fresh and vogueish today as when he make his first appearance over 35 years ago, Elmer continues to enchant children.  He’s bright enough to catch the eye of even the very youngest and this sturdy new board book, with its special mirror feature, offers lots of opportunities for early learning fun and games. There’s a peek-a-boo challenge on each page as Elmer goes in search of his new friend – which on the last page turns out to be you! The jungle scenes are as bold and vibrant as Elmer, and the warm tones and happy cast of animal characters will brighten up every day. ~ Andrea Reece
