This story is about a giraffe named Gerald who couldn't dance. In Africa, the animals put together a jungle dance but Gerald couldn't dance. He was sad and embarrassed because all of the animals laughed at him. Later on he met a cricket and the cricket started to play music. Read the book to find out what happens.

I enjoyed this book because it was happy and sad. My favorite part was when he tumbled over because he landed on his face and it made me laugh. The illustrations are awesome because they look real.

I recommend this book because it is funny and sad when he can't dance but I recommend this book because it is interesting and really good.
