Gerald the Giraffe has a tall, thin neck and long, slim legs. He’s great at reaching the highest shoots on the tallest trees, but he’s not so good at dancing. Now the annual Jungle Dance is just around the corner, and Gerald is longing to join the waltzing warthogs, rock’n’rolling rhinos and cha-cha cha-ing chimps on the dancefloor. But everyone knows that giraffes can’t dance… or can they?

A much-loved book for over 20 years, Giles Andreae and Guy Parker-Rees’ African jungle bursts to life with songs and a company of four playing warthogs, lions, rhinos, chimps – and a very special violin-playing cricket.
  
Perfect for audiences aged 2+, Giraffes Can’t Dance encourages everyone to dance to their own rhythm, and to just be a little more Gerald.
