Product Details

Praise

After his clueless dad identifies it as a “sleepy giraffe,” a boy quests to discover the name of an object found in the family dress-up box. . . . MacKinnon’s suitably wacky illustrations, in a palette of pink, purple, teal, and sienna, present a patently alternative “wild,” with a gamer gnu, a singing owl (complete with mic), and a leotard-wearing dancer giraffe.
—Kirkus Reviews

After a boy finds a strange pink creature in his dress-up box, he goes on a quest to find out what to call his new friend,
but is dissatisfied with every answer he receives. Bold black lines divide a whimsical palette of green, purple, rust, and
neon pink in illustrations bereft of color blending, evoking the flat, layered sensibility of a mural that depicts his epic
journey. The boy who knew nothing reminds us all there’s no shame in a “silly” question.
—Foreword Reviews
