Product Description

Gerald the giraffe dreads the jungle dance. His skinny legs just can’t keep up, and his tangos and two-steps are always a disaster. What if the other jungle animals laugh at him? But one day, Gerald realises that it doesn’t matter that he’s different from the others. He just needs a different tune to dance to… A talented picture duo whip up a joyous harmony of rhyme and laughter in this gorgeous story about being yourself and playing to your strengths.

Giles started writing stories when he was a primary school. He studied English at Oxford University and his first book for children,Rumble in the Jungle, was an instant hit. Giles has gone on to write many bestselling books for children, including The Lion Who Wanted to Love, winner of the Red House Book Award, and I Love My Mummy, winner of the Booktrust Early Years Award. Giraffes Can’t Dance, published in 1999, has become an international children’s classic, selling over 1.5 million copies worldwide.

Giles is the creator of Britain’s favourite stickman, Purple Ronnie, and the hugely successful Edward Monkton poetry range. He lives in Oxfordshire with his wife, Victoria, and their four children. His own personal favourite children’s book is Yertle the Turtle by Doctor Seuss.
