The answer to the question regarding why the other animals made fun of Gerald is letter D or because they thought that he was too clumsy to dance. Gerald is a fictional character from the children’s story entitled Giraffes Can’t Dance. It is written and illustrated by Giles Andreae and Guy Parker-Rees respectively and published on March 01, 2012.
It is a story about Gerald who wanted nothing more but to express himself through dancing. The only problem he had is that he had crooked knees, thin legs and neck that was too long for a giraffe. Every time he tries to dance, other animals would all jeer. Despite these problems, Gerald still continued to dance until he found his own tune though the encouraging words of his friend – a wise cricket.
