From our friend at Chronicle Books, “Today, there are no Elephants. There are no Donkeys. We are all Giraffes!”

New York Times Bestselling illustrator Tom Lichtenheld (Duck Rabbit!, Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site) was inspired by Tuesday’s election and the response to Hurricane Sandy to create this charming and inspirational image.

In his words, “Despite the storm, despite the money, despite the mud-slinging… this thing basically worked. So let’s put the elephants and donkeys out to pasture and come up with a new mascot.” – Tom Lichtenheld

Whether your sulking or gloating after the election results, let’s start working together for a better future for America.
