Elmer was different. Elmer was patchwork. He was yellow and orange and red and pink and purple and blue and green and black and white. But, he was not elephant-coloured.

One night Elmer couldn’t sleep for thinking, and the think that he was thinking was that he was tired of being different. So, off he set in search of the elephant-coloured berry bush. And this is where our story begins…

Based on the best-selling children’s book by author, David McKee, this brand new, fun-filled version of ‘Elmer’ bursts to life with jungle characters, catchy songs, and beautiful hand-crafted puppets!
