Gerald was a tall giraffe Whose neck was long and slim, But his knees were awfully bandy And his legs were rather thin...Every year Gerald dreads the great Jungle Dance, and feels ashamed that he cannot tango and two-step with the rest of the jungle animals. But then one day he realises that it doesn't matter that he is different from everyone else--its just that he needs a different tune to dance to.
A lovely story, wittily illustrated by Guy Parker-Rees and told in rhyme by the award-winning author Giles Andreae, it has a stealth and humour that makes it perfect for reading aloud. Giraffes Can't Dance is a nifty little 1story that children and adults will love to read time and time again. (Ages 3 to 5 years) --Susan Harrison --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
'all toddlers should grow up reading this or hearing their parents read it aloud to them' (The Daily Telegraph) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
A fabulous book and DVD edition of a best-loved picture book
