Here's a good natured example of why it's always best to be yourself. Dandelion, a lion of informal dress habits, got duded up past recognition for Jennifer Giraffe's birthday party. He had a permanent wave in his mane, his tatty sweater was replaced by a checkered jacket. The last touch of elegance came from a cap and a cane. When he called, Jennifer Giraffe refused to let him in thinking he was a stranger. A sudden rainstorm ruined the perm, the jacket was soaked and he put on the old sweater and completely lost his resemblance to the late Gorgeous George. He also got into the party. The action of the words is shown in the pictures,- pleasant cartoons.
