Penguins aren’t the only animal out there with problems, oh no…

From Jory John and Lane Smith, the winner of the 2017 Kate Greenaway Medal, comes a laugh-out-loud companion to the acclaimed Penguin Problems. Edward the giraffe can't understand why his neck is as long and bendy and ridiculous as it is.

No other animal has a neck this absurd. He's tried disguising it, dressing it up, strategically hiding it behind bushes ... anything he can think of. But just when he's exhausted his neck-hiding options, a turtle ambles in and tries to help him understand that his neck has a purpose ... and looks excellent in a bow tie.

  • Lane Smith was the winner of the 2017 Kate Greenaway Medal. He has also won the Caldecott Medal twice and a Society of Illustrators Lifetime Achievement Award. 
  • Penguin Problems was an Amazon and Irish Times Best Children’s Book of the Year. There are 100K+ copies in print and 11 international editions. 
  • A really stylish picture book package with high production values – it has a full page flap inside.
