Beloved author and illustrator of the Elmer picture book series, David McKee has recently won BookTrust's Lifetime Achievement Award.
Here are some of our David McKee picks:
Join Elmer, the multi-colour patchwork elephant, on his very first adventure. A firm favourite with children of all ages, Elmer is an elephant who loves to play practical jokes.
This is a humorous story in which a young boy is exasperated by his parents' refusal to listen to him, so he decides to make them take notice.
A modern classic, Elmer the colourful patchwork elephant has been a nursery favourite since his creation in 1989 and has sold over four million copies around the world. Elmer is not your normal grey elephant – his colourful exuberance cannot be contained for long! With his trademark cheeky humour, Elmer shows us that it's OK to be different.
