If you had a giraffe and he stretched another half . . . you would have a giraffe and a half.
And if you glued a rose to the tip of his nose . . .
And . . . if he put on a shoe and then stepped in some glue . . .
And if he used a chair to comb his hair . . .
And so it goes until . . . 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 Silverstein's incomparable line drawings add to the hilarity of his wildly funny rhymes. Originally published in 1964, this tale is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary by bringing back its original cover art!
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.
