"Great pictures, lovely story…"
A lovely book, fab pictures and great story. Perfect for reading aloud to older pre-schoolers and just the right length for new readers to tackle themselves. The animal characters caught the attention of my youngest but at two she dipped in and out of the story rather than follow from start to finish.Read moreLess

"This book is written by Giles Andrae aka Purple Ronnie…"
This book is written by Giles Andrae aka Purple Ronnie so as you'd expect the story is written in the style of rhyme.It tells the tale of Gerald, a tall giraffe who's neck is long and slim but has bandy legs. He goes to a jungle dance but is embarrassed because he can't dance like the other animals. He slinks away and meets a cricket in a clearing who finds some music that Gerald can dance to, so well that the other animals are amazed. Welove this book for the story, the rhymes, the pictures and the message that even clumsy creatures can be graceful. If you can get the audio version narrated by Hugh Laurie do, its wonderful.Read moreLess
