Review: Jeff the Giraffe: The Great Escape

Jeff the Giraffe: The Great Escape is a rhyming adventure picture book, written by Amelia McInerney and illustrated in expressive style by Alexandra Colombo.

When Jeff the giraffe decides to escape the zoo in the middle of the night, a kerfuffle ensues.

Jeff's tried escaping before and it didn't go to plan. 

He really only wants to visit the park, but most of the other animals are happy where they are, especially when it's pitch black outside.

But Jeff is determined. Will Roger the 'navy' seal join him? Perhaps, if he can steer clear of the sharks.

Will the zoo jeep be the means of Jeff's escape? Maybe, if he can get through the fence. Otherwise he will be left dreaming of what might have been.

Jeff the Giraffe: The Great Escape is the kind of book that should be read aloud, and will elicit lots of laughter.

A madcap adventure featuring cute animals. Bright and funny illustrations. Jeff the Giraffe: The Great Escape is a brilliant book for enjoyment at home or school.
