A bit about the 'Giraffe and Frog':

Frog and Giraffe are going to the beach... but where is it, again? Giraffe is convinced of the route and sets off confidently, striding ahead of Frog . . . but when they arrive, Frog knows that's not the beach! Where's the water? Where's the sand? Can they EVER find the right way?
