Publisher's Summary

Martine's parents are killed in a fire, and she must leave her home in England to live on a wildlife reserve in Africa with a grandmother she never even knew she had. As soon as Martine arrives at the reserve, she hears whisperings of a mythical animal living there, a white giraffe. No one has ever seen the animal, but it leaves footprints behind. Her grandmother insists that the white giraffe is just a legend, but then, one stormy night, Martine looks out her bedroom window straight into the eyes of the tall and silvery animal. The white giraffe is real!

But why is everyone keeping the giraffe's existence a secret? To find out, Martine will use all of her courage and smarts, and an emerging gift for healing, in a daring adventure to save her new friend.

    Story
    "Awesome! ( an Eleven Year Olds Review)"
    Would you listen to The White Giraffe again? Why?

    It is an exciting story with so many aspects of the african culture spread through it. The first three minutes of the story is very scaryso I would skip that part and I would suggest that you skip it too! The rest of the story is very good.


    What other book might you compare The White Giraffe to and why?

    There isn't another book that I have listened to that compares with this one.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the giraffe helped the girl escape from the snake.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I really felt for the characters. I held my breathe several times during the story. It kept me interested all the way through

    "Brilliant!"

    I'm having a wonderful priceless time reading this book with my 9yr son. Beautiful language and a well written story combine to make this a memorable book. Part mystery, part fantasy, part adventure, this story will appeal to many different types of readers. The imagery that St. John uses makes my son and I feel as if we're both was actually in Africa ourselves. Can't wait to discuss this book at his school's book club. Can't wait to ready more books by Lauren St John.
