Product Details


“This book will appeal to older preschoolers as well as elementary school kids, and would lend itself perfectly to dramatic interpretation or an art lesson in sponge or block printing.”—School Library Journalstarred review

“Never one to let an opportunity for caricature go to waste, Smith stretches Edward’s neck to comical length… That it’s just right for a giraffe is a notion that Edward, not to mention young readers with self-consciousness issues of their own, will have no trouble swallowing.”—Bookliststarred review

“Lighthearted palaver by John (The Bad Seed) flows effortlessly, and the pair’s courtly manners (“That means a great deal to me, Edward”) are sure to garner laughs as their shared dismay rings true.”—Publishers Weeklystarred review

  “With this and Penguin Problems, John is clearly setting out to catalogue animal angst continent by continent,
and audiences won’t want to miss the trip.”
—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s BooksReview, July/August 2018 issue
“Smith’s artwork is eye-catching and expressive.”
—Kirkus ReviewsReview, August 15, 2018
“Readers are afforded caring models for self-accep­tance and unconditional friendship.”
—The Horn BookReview, September/October 2018 issue
