And as the tree began to blossom,

The happiness it spread.

Can he plant it in Drabsville and bring hope and joy to a once dreary town?
A colourful, rhyming story about happiness and positivity from the creative-duo behind Giraffes Can't Dance.
Giraffes Can't Dance has been a much-loved family favourite for over 20 years, and has sold over 6 million copies worldwide.
