Gerald the giraffe doesn't genuinely have delusions of grandeur."Hey, look at clumsy Gerald,"they sneer. But an encouraging word from an unlikely source shows this glum giraffe that people that are different"just need a diverse song,"and soon he is prancing and sashaying and boogying to moon music (with a cricket accompanist ). In the vein of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Gerald's fickle"friends"quickly decide he's worthy of their attention again."Poor Gerald slinks away due to the fact the chimps cha-cha, rhinos rock 'n' roll, and warthogs waltz."Oh, Gerald, you're so weird. He just wants to dance. But his knees are crooked and his legs are thin, and all the other animals mock him when he approaches the dance floor at the annual Jungle Dance.

With this rhyming, poignant (in a cartoonish way) tale, Giles Andreae, author of Rumble in the Jungle, and numerous other picture books, shows insecure young readers that everyone can be wonderful, even those that march towards the beat of a several cricket. The rhymes are somewhat awkward, but the bold, vibrant watercolors by Guy Parker-Rees will invite readers to kick up their heels and find their very personal internal harmony.
