"A deceptively simple story that celebrates individuality, acceptance, and friendship....Litten's message [is] about the value of breaking outside of one's comfort zone—and getting to know people who don't look exactly like you." —Publishers Weekly

"The simple artwork is expressive and engaging....A sweet, empowering tale to share one-on-one or in a story time."—School Library Journal

"Aside from offering a satisfying friendship story, this book celebrates differences and shows how enriching diversity can be." —Booklist

A charming picture book about a lost giraffe and his new friend who helps him find his way home and see the world from a new perspective.
Bertie the giraffe's life is very simple and predictable: every day, he and his herd nibble leaves, sip water, and nap. But one day, Bertie oversleeps and wakes up lost and alone. Well, not quite alone—he meets Blue, a lonely blue giraffe who offers to show him the way home. On the way, Blue has a lot to show his new friend about the wonders of the world that Bertie had never noticed before. But when Bertie gets home, will his herd welcome Blue, even though he is different?

Filled with lyrical text and irresistible illustrations, this sweet tale about friendship teaches young readers about embracing differences and celebrating new perspectives.
