Ferdinand the Giraffe- Intro. (Draft)

Ferdinand the giraffe was a giraffe like any other- he was tan with brown spots, two ears, two antlers, a dark purple tongue, and a tuft of hair on top of his head that resembled a toupee.

He enjoyed roaming the Savannah with his brothers and sisters, mom and pop; and his favorite thing to do was to munch on the leaves of the acacia tree. Yep, he was a giraffe like any other.. except for one thing.. he was born tiny and never grew any bigger than you or me- for instead of giraffe-size, he stood at 3 ft. 3!

This is a draft of the introduction, and I’m busy brainstorming at this point and starting to make my own drawings. In the meantime, I’ve included this adorable cartoon drawing from an artist on Creative Commons. 🙂
