Elmer's Doodle Book

By David McKee

With linework in a different colour on each page: doodle, colour and get creative with Elmer the patchwork elephant!

The wonderful world of Elmer is brought to life for you to doodle, colour and create! Unleash your creativity as you learn to draw an elephant, help Elmer's Birds dress up for the parade, invent a new jungle fruit and more... With a different colour on each page, join Elmer and his friends to draw, doodle and colour-in Elmer's rainbow world.

  • Different coloured linework from spread to spread breaks the mould from the traditional colouring book style of black lines, bringing some signature Elmer colour to the format!
  • Each colour matches the theme of the page: from pink for Rose's Birthday Party to blue for Hippo Lake.
  • Activities encourage creative thinking and add an early-learning dimension to every page.
