Slowly building up a collection of books from my childhood for my daughter and seeing 30th anniversary edition is starting to make me feel slightly old! In fact, I was surprised at how much he felt for him, right at the first pages he identified that he was sad about being different, and he completely anticipated what his intentions were as he wandered away from the other elephants. At the end of the story Elmer makes the other elephants laugh like they have never laughed before which makes them decide to have a parade in honour of Elmer and they decorate themselves to become just like him.

His first book, Two Can Toucan, was published in 1964 and since then he has written and illustrated numerous children's books.

With colourful watercolour illustrations and gentle humour, this charming tale is the perfect bedtime read. Kangaroo thinks there is, and he is very concerned he is going to look silly in the upcoming jumping competition, until Elmer helps him discover that the one will do just as well as the other.

The grey elephants all love him, but he soon starts to wonder what it would be like to be just the same as them. In 2020 David won the British Book Awards Illustrator of the Year Award and BookTrust’s Lifetime Achievement Award. Elmer doesn’t need to tell others what to do, he just lives the way he sees fit and others are inspired by his example.
