Elmer, everyone's favourite patchwork elephant, is about to discover a strange new friend!

Is there a difference between a bounce and a jump? Kangaroo thinks there is, and he is very concerned he is going to look silly in the upcoming jumping competition, until Elmer helps him discover that the one will do just as well as the other.


Beguiling and colourful pictures illustrate a text that will captivate children.
