Shel Silverstein’s A Giraffe and a Half turns 50! This riotous, rhyming story about a boy and his giraffe was published the same year as The Giving Tree. The anniversary edition celebrates this milestone with vintage full-color jacket artwork.


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 so it goes until…. But that would be telling too much! Filled with Shel Silverstein’s familiar line drawings and wildly funny rhymes, this book will keep children laughing up to the very end as they discover how the situation is resolved.

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. However, 1964 was the year Shel Silverstein’s creativity flourished, with the publication of Don’t Bump the Glump!A Giraffe and a HalfWho 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 EndsA Light in ihe AtticFalling UpEvery Thing On ItThe Missing PieceThe Missing Piece Meets the Big O, and Runny Babbit.
