In The Press

"Everyone's favorite patchwork elephant is back in this latest installment from McKee. When Elmer helps Butterfly get out of a hole blocked by a fallen branch, he doubts that she will be able to return the favor. Then Elmer wanders onto a narrow path and becomes trapped in a cave. With Butterfly's help, Elmer's cousin Wilbur and the other elephants mount a rescue in this story reminiscent of the fable of 'The Lion and the Mouse.' Butterfly reminds readers that even the smallest animals can help a friend in need. McKee's signature style includes high contrast and sharp detail on every page along with easy to read text. Bold colors and whimsical illustrations make this an ideal read-aloud choice, while longer text selections on each page make this book ideal for older storytime attendees as well."—School Library Journal
