Two elegant lady giraffes named Mira and Shira are strolling through town one moonlit night. They get hungry but they only want to eat the delicious dish that they see in the sky. Mira thinks it’s an omelette, while Shira sees it as a shining round candy. And as they’re “the tallest ladies around here,” they’re sure that if they stretch their necks and their tongues, they’ll reach it. But they can’t. Even with a stool, then a chair, then a ladder. They just fall and scratch themselves. In the end, they give up on the moon, accept the facts and make do with ice cream. An amusing, thought-provoking nonsense tale.
