THE CONQUERORS and ELMER


David McKee is a great illustrator and storyteller. He is most well-known by the Elmer series about a patchwork elephant. However striking, funny and lovable Elmer is, for me David McKee was at his best with The Conquerors. It is a story about war and peace, about conquering with weapons or rather with words (stories, jokes and dialogue) and food and clothes.
