As a tall person whose head has been cut out of more than one photo, I loved this fun story of Giraffe's friends working together to make sure everyone is included (and in frame!).

— Sarah

Furry, feathered, and scaled—all our animal friends are ready to read. But there’s just one big problem: Giraffe is too tall!

(Or, rather, the book is too short.)

Come along for a special story time featuring six friendly animals and one puzzling predicament. Bright speech bubbles encourage readers to take an active role and find creative solutions as this wild squad works together to save story time.

Using their bodies and minds, the animals persevere through a hilarious adventure, revealing that sometimes it’s not ourselves we need to change—it’s the book!

DK Ryland loves to draw animals and nature and enjoys writing books that make kids laugh. Before she started writing for kids, DK earned a film degree and spent time filming wildlife in South Africa. She also works as an online teacher and curriculum writer, composing curriculum-aligned teaching guides for picture books. When not writing and illustrating, you can find DK going on adventures with her husband and two kids, visiting the giraffes at the San Diego Safari Park, playing sports, or reading a book – while petting a cat or a dog.
