When the jungle animals tell Gemma Giraffe she doesn't fit in, she goes in search of a group of friends who truly deserve her. But after being told her skin is too spotty, her mouth is too gummy, and she is just too skinny, Gemma begins to give up hope.
However, Gemma soon realises that she's been looking in the wrong places. She shouldn't be looking down at the ground, but up towards the sky, where a flock of new friends will appreciate her for the unique giraffe she is.
This beautiful rhyming tale follows Gemma giraffe as she learns to rise above nastiness, find friends on her level and finally walk tall.
