Elmer and the other elephants are waiting for the storm to end so they can see the beautiful, colourful rainbow. But something dreadful has happened: the rainbow has come out too soon and has lost its colours! Elmer decides to give his own colours to the rainbow, but to do that, he must find where it touches the ground. But what will happen to Elmer if he gives the rainbow his own colours? Will he lose them for ever? This is a classic story book about sharing and giving.
