Winter is coming and the village people need to collect food for the winter. None of them are tall enough to reach the apple tree, to gather food. They reach and they reach but they can not get any apples down.
The village people look around to find an animal that is tall enough to reach the apples on the tree.
They decided that the cow was the biggest animal they had. So, they brought the cow to the apple tree. The village people then saw that the cow was not tall enough to reach the apples.
The people came up with the idea to stretch the cow's neck to make it taller.
After they stretched the cow's neck, the animal grew many feet taller and turned yellow. They called this new creation a giraffe.
Now the village has an animal that is able to reach the apples out of the tree. The village people are now able to get food from the tall trees and will not starve. Giraffes are now known for their long necks and for being very tall.
