Elmer The Patchwork Elephant Show

Elmer The Patchwork Elephant Show

Toronto, ON
Reserved $29.99+

Based on the popular children’s book series by David McKee, Elmer is a celebration of individuality and the power of laughter!

Elephants are big, have trunks, and are gray. But what about Elmer, who is a patchwork of brilliant colors?  His fun-loving and cheerful personality keeps everyone in a playful mood, until the day he gets tired of being different and tries to blend in with the herd.

Elmer The Patchwork Elephant Show tells the tale of an elephant who sticks out, both with his patchwork-coloured skin, and his sense of humor, and how he and his friends learn to accept and value his unique characteristics.

A favourite of young people since the first book was published in 1989, the show’s subtle message that it is OK to be different,  combined with the vibrant colour and cheeky humour of the main character, makes Elmer a great show for kids!
