Come and meet Elmer!

David McKee’s beloved Elmer celebrates 35 years of being a nursery favourite and is brought to life by Panto Dame Mama G! Elmer is different. Elmer is patchwork. The grey elephants all love him, but he soon starts to wonder what it would be like to be just the same as them… Full of colour, wisdom and pathos, little readers will love this classic tale. Deservedly a modern classic, with over ten million copies of his books sold worldwide, Elmer’s subtle message – that it is OK to be different – resonates with children across the world.

Mama G is an award-winning year round storyteller whose work is driven by the magic of panto. She has been a panto professional for almost twenty years, appearing in productions all over the country, as well as writing, directing, and producing pantomimes for theatres and holiday parks. During that time she has worked with iconic soap stars such a Leslie Grantham and Lisa Riley, members of pop acts such as Boyzone and B*Witched, and British entertainment legends like Paul Daniels and Tommy Steele.

Since 2018 she has been sharing stories with children, and their families, about being who you want and loving who you are. The work has taken her to libraries, theatres, schools and festivals; including the Hay Festival, Cheltenham Literature Festival and even ZSL London Zoo! She is known for telling her own original stories, but she also regularly teams up with publishers such as Andersen Press and Walker Books to promote their range of classic and new publications.
