Della the giraffe is a shopaholic. She wants the latest ribbons and hats, everything that’s new. When a fashion magazine reports that green tails are all the rage, Della has to have one. Lakis Crocodilakis has green tails in stock at his Saucy Little Tail boutique. They are of the highest quality he assures Della, and they are waterproof, but they only come in sets of two. Della needs no encouragement to blow her budget. That afternoon, her friend Nina Elefantina comes to tea bearing a gift of two more tails, and Della wins a couple more in a promotional quiz. But when she proudly dons the lot and goes out for a walk, her neighbours fall about laughing. In another kind of book Della might learn her lesson, but there’s a string of pink pearls she just has to have. A light-hearted story with illustrations to match.
