10 ELMER Vorlesebücher
Der Bilderbuchklassiker für Kinder
Elmar ist kein Elefant wie jeder andere. Er ist bunt kariert und kein bisschen elefantenfarben. Er ist fröhlich und hat den Kopf voller Streiche. Doch insgeheim wünscht Elmar sich, genauso auszusehen wie jeder andere Elefant. Und eines Tages fasst er einen Plan. Er wälzt sich in grauen Beeren und reiht sich heimlich unter die anderen Elefanten. Doch als es regnet, wäscht sich Elmars Elefantengrau wieder weg. Zum Glück! Denn Elmar ist genau richtig so wie er ist.

...and the WIND
Aided and abetted by his ventriloquist cousin, Wilbur, Elmer pretends to be blown away on the windiest day. They make fools of the other elephants, but when the laughter dies down, Elmer reassures them that a heavy elephant is safe in the worst of gales. When he tries to prove it, much to his surprise, he really does get blown away!
...in the SNOW
At the first hint of a chill in the air, Elmer's friends start complaining about the cold, so Elmer decides to show them what cold weather is really like. They set off for a walk up a mountain, and the higher they get, the colder it gets. A good snowball fight at the top warms them all up, but the elephants agree that compared with the freezing mountain top, their home is not really that cold at all. With his typical sense of mischief and fun, Elmer shows how hot and cold are only relative.

One morning, Elmer hears an "Oh no!" Looking round, he spots Super El who's in need of Elmer's help. He must get to Aunt Zelda without any of the other animals seeing him and, as usual, it's up to Elmer to come up with a cunning plan!
