Momo the Monkey Adventure Series: Momo Comes to the Rescue

A TALL STORY: About the Giraffe

by Janet Keegans Harriet Matsaert

A Tall Story is a beautifully told story with charming illustrations about a curious little giraffe and the journey he has to go through (with only a silent weaver bird for company) in order to gain respect from all the other animals. It talks about taking responsibility for one's actions. It is also a story about determination and the courage to follow your dreams despite what others may think. It makes one reflect about personal journeys and our own weaver bird, whoever that may be.
