Elmer the Patchwork Elephant is celebrating his 25th birthday by coming to see youngsters in Spalding Library next month.

A fancy dress and story-telling Elmer Parade takes place at the library in Victoria Street on Tuesday September 9 at 2pm organised by Lincolnshire County Council’s Bookstart team.

The colourful elephant was created by David McKee, who is responsible for the children’s favourites Mr Benn and King Rollo, in 1989 and the books are now read in more than 20 different countries.
