If you had a giraffeand he stretched another half would have a giraffe and a half.

And if you glued a roseto the tip of his nose ...

And ... if he put on a shoeand then stepped in some glue ...

And if he used a chairto comb his hair ...

And so it goes until ... but that would be telling. Children will be kept in stitches until the very end, when the situation is resolved in the most riotous way possible.

Shel Silverstein's incomparable line drawings add to the hilarity of his wildly funny rhymes.

Delightfully zany rhymes about a giraffe who accumulates some ridiculous things--like glue on his shoe and a bee on his knee--only to lose them again, one by one. "Infectiously funny . . . a good nonsensical text and illustrations".--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books.
