Product Description

If you had a giraffe
and he stretched another half .
you would have a giraffe and a half.
And if you glued a rose
to the tip of his nose .
And . if he put on a shoe
and then stepped in some glue .
And if he used a chair
to comb his hair .

Publisher's Description

A Giraffe and a Half is fifty! This special anniversary edition celebrates the milestone with vintage full-color jacket artwork. Shel Silverstein's riotous rhyming picture book about a boy and his giraffe was published the same year as his famous tale The Giving Tree.

If you had a giraffe . . . and he stretched another half . . . you would have a giraffe and a half. And so it goes until . . . but that would be telling too much! Filled with Shel Silverstein's iconic line drawings and wildly funny rhymes, this book will keep children laughing up to the very end.

Shel Silverstein's incomparable career as a children's book author and illustrator began the previous year, in 1963, with Lafcadio, the Lion Who Shot Back. Then in 1964 Shel Silverstein's creativity flourished with the publication of Don't Bump the Glump!, A Giraffe and a Half, Who Wants a Cheap Rhinoceros?, and the beloved classic The Giving Tree. Later he continued to build his remarkable body of work with Where the Sidewalk Ends, A Light in the Attic, Falling Up, Every Thing On It, The Missing Piece, The Missing Piece Meets The Big O, and Runny Babbit.

Supports the Common Core State Standards.
