A giraffe, new to the jungle, can't seem to persuade his fellow animals that he isn't a piece furniture. To them, he's a chair, and chairs are for derrieres. "I'm a giraffe," the giraffe complains to no one in particular (which is part of the problem) after being sat upon once again. "Can't they see? I have spots and ears and eyes"--he points to his ossicones--"and whatever these things are." Burach (There's a Giraffe in My Soup) pursues the chain of consequences triggered by his wonderfully ridiculous premise with gleeful doggedness. The result is a steady stream of silliness that leads to a classic punch line, in which the core misunderstanding saves the put-upon protagonist from being eaten by a lion; a bonus final joke turns the tables yet again. Rat-a-tat dialogue and freewheeling cartooning, featuring a bounty of googly eyes and goofy expressions, make this a great readaloud for anyone who's ever felt objectified or misunderstood--a wide audience if ever there was one. Ages 4-8. Agent: Lara Perkins, Andrea Brown Literary. (Feb.) -Publisher's Weekly
“Rat-a-tat dialogue and freewheeling cartooning, featuring a bounty of googly eyes and goofy expressions, make this a great readaloud for anyone who’s ever felt objectified or misunderstood-a wide audience if ever there was one.” (Publishers Weekly)
“An engaging bit of silliness that should find a home in storytime and picture book collections.” (School Library Journal)
From the Back Cover
Is there anything worse than being mistaken for a chair?
Maybe being sat on by a stinky skunk?
Or smooshed by two hapless hippos?
Or—worst of all—cornered by a hungry lion?
What’s a poor giraffe to do when no one seems to notice that he is not standing there just to be sat upon? It’s a curious tale about finding your courage from acclaimed author-illustrator Ross Burach.
