* I received an arc to review from the publisher, in exchange for my honest review

It seems that giraffes will misbehave whether attending a birthday party, going to the movies, playing in the park, or just about anything else.

This book is simply adorable. With cute illustrations, easy to read text, and plenty of humor, this book is almost as great as owning a pet giraffe. Who wouldn't want to have a pet giraffe? Well having one might not seem all it's cracked up to be. At least that's what the story's young narrator starts out feeling. According to him, giraffes ruin everything! From birthday parties to going to the movies and playing games outside, giraffes ruin everything. That is until he realizes that just maybe giraffes really don't ruin everything.... 

You don't have to love giraffes to pick up this book, though if you do, you'll love it even more so! This is one cute picture book that's definitely worth picking up! I'm really hoping this is the first book in a series from Heidi. 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
