Stick Your Neck Out

A tale of two giraffes and a black hole that sucks

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Stick Your Neck Out is the funny, touching, uplifting tale of two giraffes and a black hole that sucks.

Geoffrey has lost his mood for giving. His life has become a gi-normous black hole. He is untouchable and unreachable...until small, sweet Penelope sticks her neck out. On her silver scooter, dressed to the max in glitter gumboots and very own tiara, Penelope rocks up to Geoffrey’s front gate to share her light and bedazzle the whole black hole saga.

Stick Your Neck Out is heartwarming hope for anyone affected by life’s black holes.

Illustrator Biography:
Andrew McKenzie. First time illustrator, long-time drawer. For as long as he can remember Andrew has been scribbling away – even when he was supposed to be paying attention in class or was bored in a business meeting. “Doodling is great. Thank God for paper and pens!” Andrew dedicates this book to his three children Benjamin, Aaron and Amber:
You do great things, You can do great things, You will do great things.
