A Very Long Neck

Le très long cou, by Basile Jungo

This wacky tale of a pair of inseparable buddies is an ode to creativity and friendship. One night, Lino the giraffe grows so fast that Douglas the monkey can no longer see his friend’s face. Douglas begins to panic, for they can no longer hear one another and have no means of communicating. So he enlists the help of Irene the anteater to concoct a multitude of crazy, ingenious solutions including a winged skateboard, a rocket ship, and a catapult in the hopes of reconnecting with his dear friend. As the two work themselves into a frenzy, Lino finds inspiration on his own, and the tale ends with a joyous celebration of their precious friendship!
