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?
David McKee's first book was published in 1964. His books are now published in many languages throughout the world, and many of them have been adapted for television. He is one of the leading contemporary children's book creators.
"As always McKee's vibrant, softly surreal artwork - he's a master of color and patterning - pulls readers headlong into the pages."
