When the annual Jungle Dance comes around, all the animals laugh at Gerald the giraffe because he's so clumsy. He wanders sadly off by himself, until he meets a cricket who gives him some sage advice.
Giraffes Can't Dance is a funny, poignant and uplifting book about being yourself and dancing to the beat of your own drum. Written by award-winning British author Giles Andreae, with exuberantly colourful illustrations by Guy Parker-Rees, this year marks the 20th Anniversary edition of this family favourite and international bestseller.
