" Really cute story about a giraffe who gets a bit bent out of shape when he has to compete with a balloon shaped like a giraffe head for attention. Sometimes you get cheering and treats when you do things you didn't want to do... " said.

" This was quite an adorable funny story. The illustrations were quite simple. The text was spaced well and the plot was good. I think this would make a great book for kids starting to read more independently. " said.

" My elementary students loved hearing this book, and it is constantly checked out of the library. It provides a good teaching example about doing the right thing. I also found it helpful with teaching foreshadowing as it allowed us to talk about what might happen or should happen. " said.

" Leopold the Giraffe becomes jealous of a giraffe balloon and breaks it. The kid with the balloon will not be deterred and he buys all the giraffe balloons; unfortunately, he trips and all of his balloons end up in Leopold's tree where he must decide whether to save the balloons. " said.

" P cute story about a giraffe who gets a bit jealous of a balloon giraffe (wants all the attention and snacks to itself). Parsley renders some great giraffe faces, especially the face of decided malice, but it's not a standout for me. " said.

" A giraffe becomes bitter and vengeful toward giraffe balloons being sold at the zoo. But he learns that just because little kids like balloons that doesn't mean they don't like you anymore too.Illustrations are fun. " said.

" Ever wonder what the zoo animals might be thinking? Do they ever get jealous if the souvenirs? Ever have to make a hard decision? Love the box of giraffe yums! Don’t miss the endpages and case cover art! " said.

" I thought this was a cute tale of a once beloved zoo giraffe that has new competition in his domain; his zoo balloons. Can the shiny replications take the kooky giraffes place? Or will they pop trying? It is truly "Neck& Neck" " said.
