Product description

Review

A fantastically funny and wonderfully colourful romp of a picture book. All toddlers should grow up reading this or hearing their parents read it aloud to them. * Daily Telegraph * Witty match of rollicking rhyme and bold colour. * Guardian * This delightful picture book is written in lively rhyming text with vivacious illustrations. * Junior * a joyful read about an outsider who finds acceptance on his own terms.... there's also a simple moral about tolerance and daring to be different. * Junior * A rhyming story with superb illustrations... wonderfully funny. * Independent * This rhyming story will delight young children and get them popping along with the rhythm * Evening Standard * Giraffes Can't Dance ... has been a bestseller for more than 15 years - and for good reason ... There's a very powerful message in there about daring to be different, and accepting others too * Irish Daily Mail * This is a lovely story that incorporates several dance forms including waltz, tango, Scottish reel amd rock n roll. I have also used the story to introduce infant classes to Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata and had them playing along with it * SAME Magazine * Lovely * Lytham St Annes Express * A lovely rhyming picture book about understanding differences * motherandbaby.co.uk * A fantastically funny and wonderfully colourful romp * The Daily Telegraph * Managed to capture the hearts of countless children. A modern classic. * Baby & Me * This rhyming poem is excellent. * The Bookseller * Extraordinary and exuberant...a terrific tale and a positive message about celebrating difference. * Bournemouth Echo * Superb...a wonderfully funny book. * The Independent * A gloriously colourful and lively book with a strong message. * Sunderland Echo * Brilliant use of colour, a continual sense of movement and high good humour all help to make this picture book richly enjoyable. * Carousel * A can-do story with lively pictures and an immensely pleasing text. * Times Educational Supplement * A hit with young children since it was first published 10 years ago * Daily Express * A wonderful, light-hearted story. * Bournemouth Daily Echo * An inspiration. * Church Times *
