Synopses & Reviews
Giraffes? Giraffes! sheds much needed light on the previously undiscovered culture and civilization of giraffes. It is the definitive text about the biology, history and overall nature of giraffes and it will surprise you. Did you know that giraffes' necks are made of paper mache? Or that their spots act as intergalactic receptors for vital information from their distant leaders? Or that giraffes love to eat iced oatmeal cookies, but will only do so if they've been left out on the counter for two days making them chewy? Well then, you need this book! Why? Because it contains many four-color photographs, line drawings, charts, and graphs of giraffes, and other things. Because of the leatherette cover with gold stamping. Because it houses a secret pouch containing giraffe postcards for correspondence and a Giraffe-to-English phrasebook. And because it contains very humorous facts, some of which might be inadvertently true.
