From the Back Cover
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 book is about a giraffe and a little boy and he keeps making the giraffe do things or adds things to him. Everytime he adds something to him you read what the giaffe has on or did all over again. The giraffe ends up taking off everthing of giving it away. In the end he is just a normal giraffe again.
From the Giraffe and a Half looking cute in a suit, playing toot on his flute, to the snake eating cake who was told to go jump in a lake, to the entire montage falling in a hole dug by a mole including the dragon whose wagon was saggin..this is the most wonderful rendition of taking an event "full circle" that you will ever read!
Once again, Shel Sliverstein captures not only young readers but adults as well, subjecting each to a "young-at-heart" mentality that is completely infectious and renders the reader full of laughter!
By far Shel's BEST YET! Excellent reading for one and all
