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.
