Giraffe Problems

By Jory John

Illustrated by Lane Smith

Penguins aren’t the only animal out there with problems, oh no…

Praise for Penguin Problems: "A small philosophy manual for readers of all ages ... wonderfully original" Observer From Jory John and Lane Smith, the winner of the 2017 Kate Greenaway Medal, comes a laugh-out-loud companion to the acclaimed Penguin Problems. Edward the giraffe can't understand why his neck is as long and bendy and ridiculous as it is. No other animal has a neck this absurd. He's tried disguising it, dressing it up, strategically hiding it behind bushes ... anything he can think of. But just when he's exhausted his neck-hiding options, a turtle ambles in and tries to help him understand that his neck has a purpose ... and looks excellent in a bow tie.
