"Fantastic book"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is a beautifully written book with a great message – one of the best children's books I've ever read.


"Hey, look at clumsy Gerald," The animals all laughed, "Giraffes can't dance you silly fool Oh Gerald, don't be daft!"

Gerald would love to join in with the other animals at the Jungle Dance, but everyone knows that giraffes can't dance ...or can they? 2009 sees the 10th anniversary of the bestselling picture book and this sturdy board book edition of this funny, touching and triumphant story from an award-winning creative team will delight and entertain every toddler.
