Elmer and the Tune

By David McKee

Ever heard a tune you just can't get out of your head?

When Rose meets Elmer she's humming a tune, a tune she just can't get out of her head. When she leaves, Elmer realises he can't get the tune out of his head either – and as he crosses the jungle he can see the infectious tune spreading to every animal Rose has met! Can Elmer help everyone get rid of it?

  • Plenty of giggles abound as the tune spreads across Elmer's jungle
  • Elmer has a clever way to get everyone to forget the tune – they must sing Happy Birthday!
  • 25th original picture book in the Elmer series, which has sold over 7 million copies worldwide in over 50 languages
