Littlest Geri tries hard to stretch up to the other giraffes so he can feature in a group photo - but is everyone looking at things from the wrong perspective? This is a picture book for anyone who has ever felt different from the herd.

The idea of a short giraffe was instantly appealing to me – the tallest animal in the world having “height issues”?! What could possibly make for a funnier story?  As I delved into the story I met the delightful Geri, the short giraffe. This book features amazing illustrations that have the cute-factor without being too babyish and the story delights as the animals try various ways to include Geri with hilarious results. The themes that arise through this story are numerous – the most obvious being the ideas that we’re all different, we all feel self-conscious about our looks and we all want to fit in with the group. What a great way to celebrate the unique features of the children in your life!
