Only 14 left in stock (more on the way). David McKee's Elmer, the good-natured elephant whose coat is a charming geometric patchwork of colors, has long starred in stories that gently show the importance of valuing diversity, and the latest has him learning a humbling lesson from a butterfly. First Elmer saves Butterfly, who is trapped in a crevice by a fallen branch. When Butterfly offers to return the favor someday, Elmer just chuckles: 'A butterfly saving an elephant, that's a good one!'

The patchwork and colourful Elmer the elephant is instantly recognisable and helps even very young children explore the idea that we are all the same, but different.

When Elmer helps Butterfly get out of a hole blocked by a fallen branch, he doubts that she will be able to return the favor. Then Elmer wanders onto a narrow path and becomes trapped in a cave. Butterfly reminds readers that even the smallest animals can help a friend in need. McKee's signature style includes high contrast and sharp detail on every page along with easy to read text. Bold colors and whimsical illustrations make this an ideal read-aloud choice, while longer text selections on each page make this book ideal for older storytime attendees as well. Emma Carbone, Brooklyn Public Library. The jazziest elephant in the jungle, Elmer is a great favourite.

Elmer and Butterfly book. Elmer and the Butterfly (2014) David McKee. The famous patchwork elephant is back in another heart-warming. Fantasy) This book reads very much like a modern day folktale, similar to the Lion and the Mouse, in which a small creature helps a large creature. With it's overly predictable plot, I didn't love this book; but I did realize that it was part of a collection of "Elmer" books that might be worth checking out.

One day, as Elmer is strolling through the jungle, he hears a cry for help. A butterfly has been trapped in a hole by a fallen branch. Elmer rushes to the rescue and frees her with ease. In return she promises to help Elmer should he ever need it. But just how can a butterfly ever help an elephant?

Such a cute story both my granddaughters loved it. Elmer is such a great character that reminds us that different is not a bad thing.
  • FRAY
story not as intricate as other elmer stories. a bit disappointing.
  • nailer
Elmer the Patchwork elephant smiled as he heard someone shouting to him from the branches of a tree. Perhaps it was Monkey or even that tricky Snake. Suddenly there was a laugh coming from behind a bush. It was not Monkey, it was silly cousin Wilber. “You are clever with your voice tricks,” claimed Elmer. Indeed he was, but later when Elmer was taking his walk he heard yet another voice calling, “Help! Help!” Now this voice sounded much more serious, but it was probably Wilber up to his old tricks. Not.

Someone really was in distress and it was Butterfly who was”trapped in a hole behind a fallen branch.” Oh, my goodness! Now this was serious and Elmer moved the branch with his trunk to free poor Butterfly. It was nothing, but Butterfly exclaimed, “If you do need me, just call my name.” Now just how could a little butterfly ever help Elmer? Elmer continued on his walk, deciding to try an unfamiliar path when all of a sudden there was danger! The path began to crumble. “Oh, no! There’s no way back,” he cried. Would anyone be able to hear Elmer or would he fall down into the river below?

This is a wonderfully fun tale about Elmer and the lowly Butterfly children will love. Of course Elmer chuckled when he heard Butterfly promise that he would help him if he ever found himself in need. “A butterfly saving an elephant, that’s a good one!” Elmer said to himself. Children certainly will learn that even the smallest person, or Butterfly in this case, is capable of helping someone else. The importance of helping others and friendship is immeasurable. The artwork, as usual, is eye-popping with its bright colors and patchwork appeal. This would be a great read and discuss tale during circle or storytime. A great anytime tale for that matter!
