Be prepared for an onslaught of knock-knock jokes from anyone who reads this book. A great introduction to jokes for young children told by a very likeable giraffe called Gerri. Gerri likes to share a good joke and he thinks his jokes are hilariously funny unfortunately his neighbours do not share in his humour. Finally Gerri finds an appropriate place and an appreciative audience.
This would be an entertaining story to share with a group or class and a great way to introduce finding the right time and place for fun and games. There is a song that you can download to accompany the book.
