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.

Reviews

'“Beautiful design and sophisticated humour mean this picture book has charm beyond the intended age group and could become a real household favourite.”' BookTrust

'“The sheer range of this book means that you could quite legitimately buy it for anyone of any age group, and they would find something to enjoy. And of course, the message, that perceived ‘difference’ is (a) normal and (b) actually quite good, is a life lesson that we would all do well to remember! ”' Armadillo

'“Accompanied by Lane Smith's witty and beautifully textured illustrations, Jory John's story offers a breezy view of these issues as well as some endearingly elegant and polite dialogue between Edward and Cyrus.”' The School Librarian
