The Happy Giraffe by Frances Cavanah. Pictures by Clarence Biers. 1944 Printed in the U.S.A. First edition. Wilcox and Follett Co., Chicago Hardcover book with flocked wrap around illustration of Giraffe and monkey. Measures 9 x 6 1/2 inches with 23 unpagenated pages. The inside cover paste downs are illustrated and flocked. Colorfully illustrated, the pages are shorter than the book cover so the giraffe can be seen as the story is being read. A delightful, charming book with baby zoo animals.

All the baby animals wonder why Mrs. Giraffe is so happy. One by one the baby animals try to get a peek through the fence and by the end of the story the mystery is solved.

A scarce title. Not an ex library. No inscriptions. Has some toning and minor spotting. No page tears. Some of the flocking is worn off the giraffe on the front cover but mostly intact. The cover and pages are intact. The interior flocking is great. The dustjacket is a little rough with chipping and tears and flocking completely worn off.
