The Starry Giraffe Author Event

  • Barnes & Noble Union Square 33 East 17th Street New York, NY, 10003 United States (map)

In the tradition of Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree, a generous giraffe gives away all of his apples to his hungry friends in this winning picture book that begs to be read aloud.

Poor starry giraffe: every time he reaches for a yummy red apple from a tall tree, one of his hungry friends comes along and the generous giraffe shares the treat. Just when you think he has nothing left to eat for himself, a turn of the page shows otherwise: the starry giraffe is at an apple orchard and there are apples and trees galore!

Join Barnes & Noble for an event with author Andrew Bergmann and the disarmingly delightful debut picture book. An accomplished New York based artist and storyteller, Bergmann puts a surprising twist on a classic story.
