Grouping themselves together in a circle, the toys listened
as Jennifer told them how Star Princess had fallen off her star!

help us'' Jennifer added.
The toys turned to one another wondering what they were going to do.
Giraffe had the first idea. ''I think'' he began, and cleared his long

the toys. ''UGHM, I was thinking that if Star Princess were to climb onto
my neck, UGHM, I could then take her to a very large tree, yes, the
very largest tree in fact, and she could then climb into the branches
and on arriving at the top of the tree she could jump the rest of the

Amanda, exploded into great guffaws of laughter. Giraffe lowered

idea indeed but unfortunately we haven't a tree in the garden that would
be tall enough!'' ''UGHM yes, UGHM. Yes you are right
Jennifer, yes you are definitely right.'' Giraffe closed his eyes in
