A Giraffe and a Half (Library Binding)
HarperCollins, 9780060256562, 48pp.
Publication Date: January 1, 1964
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
if he put on a shoe
and then stepped in some glue
And if he used a chair
to 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 Silversteins incomparable line drawings add to the hilarity of his wildly funny rhymes.
