Jochen Weeber / Fariba Gholizadeh

What on Earth is Wrong with Gisbert?

Gisbert has lots of friends and feels very comfortable in his giraffe skin. One day he hears two hyenas whispering behind his back about his brown spots, and suddenly he feels smaller! Then the hippo comments that his trumpet playing is terrible – and he shrinks a little more. This continues and gets worse, until he feels so small that he can even crawl underneath the sofa. But one day, when his friends leave a piece of cake and a card on his doorstep, Gisbert finally knows what is wrong with him.
