Staff Reviews

Clever, humorous illustrations detail the antics of a stage family of giraffes whose youngest member, Rufus, helps the show go on (5-7).


— From Humor


Night after night, little Rufus Chandelier watches from the wings while the rest of his family puts on "the greatest show in town." But Rufus isn't quite big enough to be a part of the show. Until the night when everything goes terribly wrong, and it is Rufus Chandelier who makes certain that the show goes on. With winsome, colorful illustrations, Vincent X. Kirsch's entertaining story shows that the greatest reward is simply the chance to help others no matter how little you might be.
