A beautiful 20th Anniversary Gift Edition of this much-loved classic picture book about being yourself and finding your own tune.

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?

Giraffes Can't Dance has been a family favourite for 20 years. A funny, touching and triumphant story, it has sold over 4 million copies worldwide. Now in a beautiful limited-edition hardback, complete with a foiled slipcase, this is the perfect present for every family.

A highly collectable edition for fans old and new.
