Denver is rich – very, very rich. Everyone in the village loves him for his kindness and generosity. But one day a stranger arrives, who breeds discontent by telling the villagers it isn’t fair for Denver to have so much more than they do. When Denver hears what has happened, he divides his money equally between everyone. He moves to a new village, where he lives happily and is better appreciated, but for the old villagers life is just not the same without him.
“McKee’s gentle humor and love of irony are in full force in this celebration of individuality and laughter.” –“Publishers Weekly” on “Elmer”
A wonderful picture book from David McKee about being content with your lot.
