A book and CD edition of the much-loved picture book classic Giraffes Can't Dance, with audio read by Hugh Laurie.

Gerald the giraffe longs to go to the great Jungle Dance, but how can he join in when he doesn't know how to tango or two-step? Everyone knows that giraffes can't dance ... or can they?

A funny, touching and triumphant story about being yourself and finding your own tune, Giraffes Can't Dance has been a family favourite for 20 years.

This edition comes complete with an audio CD featuring the story read by Hugh Laurie.
