Publisher Description

Celebrating 15 years of the bestselling Giraffes Can't Dance with a new edition with fantastic foiled cover! Gerald the tall giraffe would love to join in with the other animals at the Jungle Dance, but everyone knows that giraffes can't dance ...or can they? This funny, touching and triumphant story about a giraffe who finds his own tune has been a much-loved family favourite for over 15 years.

An inspiration. Church Times a joyful read about an outsider who finds acceptance on his own terms... there's also a simple moral about tolerance and daring to be different. Junior This delightful picture book is written in lively rhyming text with vivacious illustrations. Junior A rhyming story with superb illustrations... wonderfully funny. Independent Witty match of rollicking rhyme and bold colour. Guardian A fantastically funny and wonderfully colourful romp of a picture book. All toddlers should grow up reading this or hearing their parents read it aloud to them. Daily Telegraph
