LoveReading View on Have You Seen My Giraffe?

July 2017 Book of the Month  This picture book puts a quirky spin on the ‘I want a pet’ theme. Imagine if, instead of goldfish, the fair was giving away giraffes as prizes. Of course you’d want to keep it, but how would you persuade your parents to let you, and if they said no, how would you hide your new pet? The little girl’s plans get increasingly wild – I particularly liked the suggestion that you paint your whole house like a giraffe, or your whole giraffe like a house for camouflage purposes – but in the end she agrees they’ll just have to take her new pet home to the jungle, which allows for a lovely twist. Imaginative, silly and heartwarming, this is also a wonderful celebration of family love. ~ Andrea Reece

About Michelle Robinson

Michelle Robinson grew up in Gloucestershire and loved making up stories and being silly. She put that to good use by getting a job as a copywriter. She wrote over 6000 radio adverts before moving on to television and the web and devised websites for big brands like Coca-Cola, Guinness and Cadburys. She soon got bored though, which is when she started writing funny stories for children and their parents to enjoy reading umpteen times. Her picture book There's a Lion in My Cornflakes won the Sainsbury's Children's Book Awards. Michelle lives in Frome with her husband, young son ...
