Elmer and the race

Elmer and the race

McKee, David, author, artist

The young elephants want to have a race to prove who is fastest, so Elmer and Wilbur organise a course. With each racer decorated a different colour, they set off around the course and discover things about themselves - Blue is first, Orange is second, White is kind, Pink and Violet are funny and Yellow is a cheat. Luckily Yellow also learns he is very good at saying sorry, so each young elephant gets a medal from Elmer
