Book Cover & Preview Text
This is a story about Larry the Giraffe.
Larry likes to make everyone laugh.
But you see, it was not always that way,
With such a long neck he would lower his head,
Because he was afraid of what others might say.
That made him an odd looking giraffe,
And indeed, that did make everyone laugh.
He didn’t like to be laughed at, so most days he would just sit at home...
This story introduces us to Larry, a sometimes sad giraffe who sets out to make new friends only to find that being different is sometimes a challenge. We travel with Larry as he comes to realize that being different is not always a bad thing.
