Giraffes Can't Dance

Gerald the giraffe dreads the jungle dance. His skinny legs simply can’t keep up. His tangos and two-steps are always a disaster. What if the other jungle animals laugh at him? But one day, Gerald realises it doesn’t matter that he’s not like the others. He just needs a different tune to dance to… A talented picture duo whip up a joyous harmony of rhyme and laughter in this tale of being yourself and playing to your strengths.

  • A delightful classic with a heartwarming message
  • Encourages children to embrace their individuality
  • Told in witty rhyme and exuberant colour artwork
  • By the bestselling author of Rumble in the Jungle

“A fantastically funny and wonderfully colourful romp of a picture book.” Daily Telegraph
