It’s not just penguins who have problems you know! From the creators of Penguins Problems comes this stylish and original laugh-out-loud companion.

We all have a tendency to look at ourselves in a different way than we would do for others. Often believing that we are different and dislike our features. However, difference is (a) normal and (b) actually quite good – a life lesson that we would all do well to remember!

Giraffe Problems

Written by Jory John
Illustrated by Lane Smith
Published by Walker Books

Edward the giraffe has a problem, a long neck problem. It’s too long, too bendy, too narrow and frankly just ridiculous. No other animal has a neck this absurd. Edward tries everything from hiding behind trees to dressing it up with scarves but it’s no better! Just when he’s feeling really low he meets Cyrus the turtle who shares Edward’s neck woes. The turtle tries to help Edward understand that his neck has a purpose but will he learn to love himself?

Our thoughts of Giraffe Problems

This non-rhyming story follows Edward the Giraffe as he attempts to hide and disguise his long neck. Finding fault with his own body image and feeling low he meets Cyrus who has the opposite problem to Edward – he has a very short neck and can see the advantages of having a long neck just like Edward’s. A funny story helping children understand body image and learning to understand how we can love the things that might make us different.
