A fun story about a Giraffe who is constantly mistaken for a chair. It's definitely a read-out-loud book for children.

Spoilers: I personally don't like the irony of the Giraffe sitting on a turtle at the end, but it's clever, and I'm sure it'd get a laugh out of most people.

My three year old son liked this book more than I did - but it's aimed at him not me, so I suppose that's a good thing.

The concept is excellent. The art is great. The words used to tell the story are really really choppy and need to be read in exaggerated "acting out" voice or the story flops. So, if you're the type who likes to "do the voices" when you read to your kids, it'll be a good book for you. If not, it won't.

Hilarious story and great drawings - the expressions on the faces were delightful. LOVED this one!
