About this item

A giraffe goes through many humorous changes, but still remains the same.

About this item

A giraffe goes through many humorous changes, but still remains the same.

If you had a giraffe and he stretched another half . . . you would have a giraffe and a half.

And if you glued a rose to the tip of his nose . . .

And . . . if he put on a shoe and then stepped in some glue . . .

And if he used a chair to comb his hair . . .

And so it goes until . . . but that would be telling. Children will be kept in stitches until the very end, when the situation is resolved in the most riotous way possible.

Shel Silverstein's incomparable line drawings add to the hilarity of his wildly funny rhymes. Originally published in 1964, this tale is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary by bringing back its original cover art

This is a very good and fun book for kids. I think it should be carried in the store. I ordered it for my granddaughter for Christmas. I ordered it on line and received it in a timely manner. However, I would have rather been able to just go to the store and purchase it there.
