Synopsis:

Delightfully zany rhymes about a giraffe who accumulates some ridiculous things--like glue on his shoe and a bee on his knee--only to lose them again, one by one. "Infectiously funny . . . a good nonsensical text and illustrations".--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books.

Synopsis:

If you had a giraffe

and he stretched another half and#133;

you would have a giraffe and a half.

And if you glued a rose

to the tip of his nose and#133;

And and#133; if he put on a shoe

and then stepped in some glue and#133;

And if he used a chair

to comb his hair and#133;

And so it goes until and#133; but that would be telling. Children will be kept in stitches until the very end, when the situation is resolved in the most riotous way possible.

Shel Silversteinand#146;s incomparable line drawings add to the hilarity of his wildly funny rhymes.
