Summary

No, no, NO!

Geraldine is NOT moving.

Not to this new town where she's the only giraffe. Not to this new school where she has no friends. Not to this new place, where everyone only knows her as That Giraffe Girl.

But soon Geraldine meets Cassie, a girl who is just as much of an outcast as she is, and as time goes by, she realizes that being yourself and making one really good, unusual friend can help someone who literally stands out fit right in.

Together, Geraldine and Cassie play by their own rules.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Geraldine the giraffe is dismayed you can tell by the disconsolate slump in her long neck. Her parents got new jobs, and now they need to move from the giraffe city to a human town. Being the new girl would be bad enough, but Geraldine sticks out, literally! She's too tall for the bus, too tall for the pool, and, worst of all, too tall to hide. When she finally finds a quiet tree, she's surprised when she runs into another girl, Cassie, who also feels like an outcast: I'm that girl who wears glasses and likes MATH and always organizes her food! But both Cassie and Geraldine learn that one friend can be enough to create a sense of belonging. Lilly illustrates this evergreen picture book topic with freewheeling artwork in loose, sketchy cartoon figures and watercolor washes. Geraldine's long neck is particularly expressive, and her height among her human classmates makes for some silly visual comedy. Though there's not much new here, little ones will likely appreciate the warm tone and humorously mismatched friends.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This funny, thoroughly accomplished debut opens with two words: "I'm moving." They're spoken by the title character while she swoons across her family's ottoman, and because Geraldine is a giraffe, her full-on melancholy mode is quite a spectacle. But while Geraldine may be a drama queen (even her mother says so), it won't take readers long to warm up to her. The move takes Geraldine from Giraffe City, where everyone is like her, to a new school, where everyone else is human. Suddenly, the former extrovert becomes "That Giraffe Girl," and all she wants to do is hide, which is pretty much impossible. "Even my voice tries to hide," she says, in the book's most poignant moment. "It's gotten quiet and whispery." Then she meets Cassie, who, though human, is also an outlier ("I'm that girl who wears glasses and likes MATH and always organizes her food"), and things begin to look up. Lilly's watercolor-and-ink drawings are as vividly comic and emotionally astute as her writing; just when readers think there are no more ways for Geraldine to contort her long neck, this highly promising talent comes up with something new.
