A rollicking adventure story of a giraffe who takes to the slopes

Your giraffe wants to learn how to ski—but but not on the bunny hill. She wants to go down the big scary slope! Enjoy this riotous journey as the narrator tries to reign their giraffe in—and learns something about courage along the way.


"A wintry friendship story that cleverly conceals a how-to for conquering one's fears and getting back up after snowy falls." —Kirkus Reviews

"This sparkling double debut offers a good mix of exhilaration and basic technique." —Booklist
