The Short Giraffe by Neil Flory


The Short Giraffe by Neil Flory

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? A charming and very funny picture book for anyone who has ever felt different from the herd. Meet Geri, the shortest giraffe in the world. The other giraffes try everything to get him up to their level...until an unexpected hero offers a solution that takes everyone by surprise. Sometimes the best way up is down. Ages: 1 to 4

About the Author

Neil Flory does a lot of things. He plays the guitar and sings, does a bit of art, designs fishtanks, has started a clothing label and also works as a writer / creative director in advertising. By the time you read this, chances are he'll have added something else to that list. He has lived on three different continents in the last four years. He has one wife. And one son. One day, that one son asked him for a bedtime story. Neil promptly told him the story of The Short Giraffe. And thus began his journey into the world of children's stories. Now he can't stop writing them. And between you and me, he enjoys them a lot more than he does writing ads. Mark Cleary is graphic designer, a web designer, an advertising art director, a sometimes photographer and illustrator. But there's more he wants to try too. He believes you can do anything if you apply yourself to it, and have an idea of how you want to do it. Late at night while everyone else is asleep is this best time for working
