Elmer and Snake by David McKee
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The elephants decide to play a trick on Elmer. Snake suggests pretending to Elmer that he looks pale and ill, to see if they can make him believe that he really is unwell. However, at the same time, Snake also plots with Elmer to trick the other elephants into thinking he is sick by covering Elmer in pale mud. It works, and the other elephants get rather worried about him. They ask Snake to give his advice - and he suggests tickling Elmer! Of course the dried mud cracks open, and the elephants realise that Snake has tricked them all. But, they can't tickle Snake because he's very sensibly gone on holiday!
