This book is targeted towards children between 3-6 years of age. The story line is about a Giraffe that has glasses on his head but just can’t find them! George’s little adventure takes him around the world and asks individual animals ‘HAVE YOU SEEN MY GLASSES?’ The animals are all too busy and answer ‘NO’. George finally asks his sister GRACE who is slightly taller than him: ‘HAVE YOU SEEN MY GLASSES’ and she replies ‘THEY’RE ON TOP OF YOUR HEAD SILLY!’. As a father with two girls Amelia and Daisy (8 and 5 years of age) I enjoy reading books to them. They appreciate simplicity and repetitiveness. These are the thoughts behind the book and I threw the kangaroo in because I’m Australian and moved to the UK in 2002.
