Reviews

The Horn Book Guide

“Super El’s costume tore on a thornbush, so Elmer the patchwork elephant helps him reach Aunt Zelda, who can mend the costume. But to get there, Elmer must devise ways to sneak Super El past all the other animals so they won’t laugh at him. The bright gouache illustrations accentuate this cheerful story about friendship and helpfulness that is light on real tension but nicely paced.” —The Horn Book Guide

School Library Journal

“The spreads are done in vivid colors and have everything Elmer fans have come to expect. This adorable tale shows young readers that even superheroes need help once in a while.” —School Library Journal
