Effuse with personality, Sophia embarks on an uphill endeavor to convince her parents and other family members she needs a giraffe. Sophia's lively pie charts, graphs, and illustrations burst from each page, pleading for agreement. But her arguments are too "loquacious" and "verbose." Say more with fewer words her family tells her. But are fewer words really more compelling? An important message cleverly conveyed.
Publisher Summary
Sophia tries varied techniques to get the giraffe she wants more than anything in this playfully illustrated story about the nuances of negotiation.

Sophia has one true desire for her birthday. But she has Four Big Problems in the way: Mom, Dad, Uncle Conrad...and Grand-mama.

Will her presentations, proposals, and pie charts convince them otherwise?

Turns out, all it takes is one word.

Wanting a pet giraffe for her birthday more than anything, exuberant little Sophia uses presentations, proposals, and pie charts to negotiate with reluctant family members.
