In this mischievously funny picture book, friends come in all shapes and sizes.

In case you were wondering, here's an incomplete list of things giraffes ruin:

- Birthday parties

- Going to the movies

- Playing at the park

- Hide and Seek

- Everything else

Yes, that's right. Giraffes ruin everything.

But what happens when our narrator gets into a tricky situation? Perhaps he'll find giraffes aren't so bad after all . . .

It was such a pleasure to read this silly and simple book to my granddaughter. But more importantly, my granddaughter (3) loved it! She has a thing for giraffes anyway, but it was this story that made her laugh. The wonderful illustrations add vibrancy.

I absolutely love this book! The story is funny and clever, and has that element that will get kids repeating phrases along with you if you're reading aloud. And the illustrations are absolutely adorable. This would be a great book for classrooms, libraries, and to have at home. My kids are already asking for a sequel. :)
