David McKee grew up in Devon, England. Later, while a student at Plymouth Art College, he began selling his cartoon drawings to newspapers. Since 1964 he has published a number of successful books for children, including the King Rollo stories, which he helped animate for British television. His first book for Lothrop was Snow Woman, of which Publishers Weekly said, "It is McKee's superb humor--conveyed almost solely in the illustrations...that wins the day." Of his second Lothrop book, Who's a Clever Baby, Publishers Weekly had this to say: "Grandma's alliterative frenzies are fascinating and readers will find Baby's manipulative stubbornness vastly amusing."
Mr. McKee enjoys traveling and doing books that "leave things unsaid."From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-K-Fans will welcome the return of a favorite character. Elmer, the patchwork elephant, volunteers to find Baby Elephant's lost teddy bear, which was left behind during a picnic. In the interim, Elmer kindly lends the youngster his own teddy. As Elmer searches, all of the animals he meets-tigers, lions, giraffes, and zebras-try to help. Finally, with the assistance of Wilbur, his checkerboard-colored cousin, Elmer finds Baby Elephant's bear and returns it. The familiar theme and the straightforward dialogue will delight children. The illustrations, saturated with bright colors and adorable baby animals, are perfect for the text. The pages are rich in detail and youngsters will enjoy finding fanciful birds, trees, and flowers in the jungle scenes. Elmer sends a positive message to children, showing them how to comfort with kindness when he parts with his own precious teddy bear to make Baby Elephant feel better.
