Elmer's Band

A Press-Button Sound Book

Formats & editions

Children will love pressing sound buttons to make jungle music with Elmer's band!

Join Elmer, everyone's favourite patchwork elephant, and his jungle band for a noisy day! Poorly Wilbur has lost his voice, so to cheer him up Elmer decides to bring together all the jungle musicians to play in a band. Come with Elmer and Wilbur as they recruit each member of the band – from Lion with his huge roar to Frog with his little croak. Only when they are all gathered does Wilbur find out he's really important, even if he has lost his voice – his loud footsteps are the drum beat that will keep the whole band together.
