Elmer Elevator is a little boy who stows away on a ship to Wild Island to rescue a flying baby dragon in distress. Like a young McGyver, he uses rubber bands, lollipops and chewing gum to accomplish his mission! The story is sweet and campy, but young kids have loved it for decades! I bet your children will too.
