Elmer and the Lost Treasure

By David McKee
Illustrated by David McKee

Elmer and his friends go looking for the Lost Treasure of the jungle... but how will they know when they've found it?

Elmer, Wilbur and a brave troop of elephants set out on a quest to find the famous Lost Treasure of the jungle. When they stumble across a beautiful forgotten temple, Elmer's friends rush inside, keen to find the Lost Treasure before him, but Elmer appears to have stopped searching... A new tale from master-storyteller David McKee that delivers just as much pathos as the very first, this is the twenty-eighth Elmer storybook.

  • The twenty-eighth original Elmer picture book.
  • Elmer celebrates diversity, being different, and accepting who you - and others - are.
  • Over 10 million copies of the Elmer series have sold worldwide, including over 4 million in the UK alone, and Elmer has been translated into more than 50 languages.
