Giraffe Problems


Author: Jory John

Illustrator: Lane Smith

The bestselling creators of the hilarious Penguin Problems, Jory John and Lane Smith, turn a giraffe's problematic long neck into an enviable advantage in this fun picture book. Penguins aren't the only ones with problems. Giraffes have them too! 
Can you guess what's making this giraffe self-conscious? Could it be... HIS ENORMOUS NECK?? Yes, it's exactly that — how on earth did you figure it out?

Edward the giraffe can't understand why his neck is as long and bendy and, well, ridiculous as it is. No other animal has a neck this absurd. He's tried disguising it, dressing it up, strategically hiding behind bushes--honestly, anything you can think of. Just when he has exhausted his neck-hiding options and is about to give up, Cyrus the turtle ambles in (very slowly) and helps Edward understand that his neck has a purpose and, besides, looks excellent in a bow tie. 

Along with a heavy dose of humor comes a gentle reminder about the importance of acceptance.
