Wonderfully illustrated with colored ink drawings reminiscent of Arnold Lobel and William Steig, this tall tale for readers 4 to 8 treats us to an unforgettable performance of the Chandeliers, that winning troupe of performing giraffes, who delight audiences with their extravagant stage performance. Well, all except young Rufus, who's not yet old enough to perform. And yet somehow, when everything goes wrong, it is Rufus who can be counted on to keep things running smoothly in this "sweetly loopy, stagestruck family" (Publishers Weekly) created by Vincent Kirsch.
"Each member of the world-renowned Chandelier family is featured in a pre–title-page cameo.... There are humorous visual details in the bustling watercolor-and-line compositions, and children will enjoy searching for the tiny mouse wearing a giraffe costume in every scene."—Kirkus Reviews
