A Giraffe and a Half

A Giraffe and a Half

"If you had a giraffe
and he stretched another half...
you would have a giraffe and a half.

And if you glued a rose
to the tip of his nose...

And...if he put on a shoe
and then stepped in some glue...

And if he used a chair
to comb his hair..."

And so it goes until … but that would be telling. Children will be kept in stitches until the very end, when the situation is resolved in the most riotous way possible.

Shel Silverstein” s incomparable line drawings add to the hilarity of his wildly funny rhymes.
