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.
I've owned where the sidewalk ends, the giving tree, and have read a couple of his other collections of works, but boy, is this book amazing. As always, Silverstein's quirkiness takes over the book from page 1. It's a short, light hearted roller coaster of a poem and is totally animated with amazing pictures. I'm quite sure it will be a great addition to our friend's library, or coffee table, and I highly recommend it for anyone reading this! You don't even need to like giraffes!

This book is special to me. I was a little disappointed to see a small tear in a corner of the dust jacket since the book is supposed to be new but it isn't serious enough for me... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Kathleen Riggs
