All giraffes, even baby Gisele, know that the juiciest leaves are on the tops of the trees. But how does she reach them? No matter how she stretches or twists, those tasty leaves are just too high. A strong story with a light touch, and colorful art with extra touches of humor, appeals to both children and adults.
