Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gerald the giraffe longs to dance, but his legs are too skinny and his neck is too long. His knees buckle whenever he tries to twirl. At the Jungle Dance, the warthogs waltz, the chimps cha-cha, and the lions tango. Giraffes can't dance, they all jeer when it's Gerald's turn to prance. But there is one little creature who believes in Gerald. Everything makes music, the cricket explains, if you really want it to. So Gerald starts swaying to his own sweet tune.

With light-footed rhymes and high-stepping illustrations, this tale is gentle inspiration for every child with dreams of greatness.

Synopsis:

Gerald is a giraffe that can't dance. Try as he might, his long, spindly legs buckle whenever he starts to boogie. Every year he dreads going to the Great Jungle Dance--until one night he finds his own special music. Full-color illustrations.
