Furry, feathered, and scaled—all our animal friends are ready to read. But there’s just one big problem: Giraffe is too tall!

(Or, rather, the book is too short.)

Come along for a special story time featuring six friendly animals and one puzzling predicament. Bright speech bubbles encourage readers to take an active role and find creative solutions as this wild squad works together to save story time.

Using their bodies and minds, the animals persevere through a hilarious adventure, revealing that sometimes it’s not ourselves we need to change—it’s the book!
