Its true that getting along can be difficult, but Giraffe and Bird don't even try. When Bird makes a face, Giraffe sticks out his tongue; when Bird tweets in his ear, Giraffe invades Birds personal space. Bird can't put up with Giraffes bad breath; Giraffe cant abide it when Bird eats too much fiber and then well, you know. If you ask them, Giraffe and Bird will tell you: they cant stand each other. One day Giraffe loses his patience and Bird is fed up. Scram! says Giraffe. Get lost! says Bird. And so they do. You would think theyd be happy now, but you might be wrong. Without each other, how will Bird and Giraffe weather the coming storm? A hilarious debut by author and artist Rebecca Bender, Giraffe and Bird combines a clever text introducing synonyms with bright, expressive art to tell the funny and slightly tender story of two enemies who eventually realize they are much better off together.
