In this mischievously funny picture book, friends come in all shapes and sizes.

In case you were wondering, here's an incomplete list of things giraffes ruin:
- Birthday parties
- Going to the movies
- Playing at the park
- Hide and Seek
- Everything else

Yes, that's right. Giraffes ruin everything.

But what happens when our narrator gets into a tricky situation? Perhaps he'll find giraffes aren't so bad after all . . .

Heidi Schulz is the author of the middle grade novel Hook's Revenge and its sequel Hook's Revenge: The Pirate Code. Giraffes Ruin Everything is Heidi's first picture book and was inspired by a run-in with a rude giraffe. She lives in Salem, Oregon, with her husband, their daughter, and several short-necked pets.

Editorial Reviews

'Bright digital illustrations enliven this cheeky tale. A young child learns to navigate the nuances of social relationships, with help from a spotted, lanky friend." - Kirkus Reviews"A gentle but firm reminder that patience and understanding have their rewards. Robertson's easygoing cartooning, with its hints of 1960s-style animation, makes it an easy lesson to learn." - Publishers Weekly"Brightly colored illustrations complement the text perfectly and are very engaging. Young readers, especially animal lovers, will want to read this book. It would also make an entertaining read aloud for story time." - School Library Connection"A heartwarming lesson of learning to understand and accept friends as they are. . . . This cute offering about friendship is a solid choice for storytime and individual sharing." - School Library Journal"Whether a fan of J.M. Barrie's classic tale or new to Neverland, readers will be clamoring for more from this enchanting world." - starred review, School Library Journal on HOOK'S REVENGE"Readers will delight both the story and the storytelling." - starred review, Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books on HOOK'S REVENGE
