David McKee – Elmer and Rose
- Publisher: Andersen Press
- number of pages: 32
- Part of a series: Yes — there are many books with Elmer the Patchwork Elephant.
Elmer is a special elephant, he isn´t grey, he is blue, red, yellow, white and many other colors: the Patchwork Elephant. One day he and his cousin Wilbur are told to come to their grandpa. He tells them about Rose, a little pink elephant, who has gotten lost. Elmer an Wilbur help her to find back to her herd and find out that normal is only the way you think of it.
I love all books of this wonderful elephant, but this one I think is the one I like best, because of Rose and the special way her story is told. In my opinion it is a good book to teach children what being different means and that it is only in the way we think. The pictures of the book are as beautiful as in all the other books on Elmer and make you like it even more (if that is possible). I can recommend it to all people, not only the little ones.
