Mouse & Giraffe (Hardcover)
New York Times bestselling author Kelly DiPucchio presents how two friends with very different perspectives learn how to see eye to eye.
Mouse and Giraffe don't agree on anything.
They live on the same street, but their experiences couldn't be more different. On sunny days, Mouse is comfortable in the shade, while Giraffe is so tall, he overheats in the sun. On rainy days, Giraffe is dry above the clouds, while Mouse gets stuck in the storm. What will it take for Mouse and Giraffe to learn that perspective is all about walking in someone else's shoes?
New York Times bestselling author Kelly DiPuccio and celebrated illustrator Jen Corace have created a relatable tale about two unlikely friends who finally see eye to eye.
