MOUSE & GIRAFFE
Viking Books for Young Readers
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.
"A thought-provoking exploration of understanding differences."
"Neighbors Giraffe and Mouse learn the art of appreciating another's perspective in this humorous look at empathy."
"With a light touch, DiPucchio’s entertaining tale addresses themes of perspective and the biases that can come with personal experience."
