Love animals? Don’t just visit the zoo. Head to a new life in Africa! Magical secrets, wild landscapes, exotic creatures: it’s animal paradise. At first, Martine hates the idea of living in South Africa. How can she be happy there? She’s lonely and friendless: an orphan, stuck with a grumpy guardian on a game reserve miles from anywhere. But then Martine meets the white giraffe. One night he’s there, outside her window: silver in the moonlight, looking straight at her. What does he want? Well: he knows something very special about Martine, starting with her magical healing powers…

  • Dramatic adventures full of magic and wild mystery
  • Stunning look at Africa’s wildlife and vivid landscapes
  • Heartfelt message about respecting animals and nature

    I’ve read the whole White Giraffe series and they are really thrilling. I think my favorite one was …... hmmmm …....I liked all of them but…......... I think Dolphin’s song…...no, no …... The last leopard…...actually…..no, no….. You know what I can’t choose! They’re all amazing! Perfect for animal lovers whatever age you are. I would read them again but i got the books from my local and school libary. :( Oh well! :>

    I loved The White Giraffe because it made me feel like I was there. It is a charming and heart warming read. I love the strong friendship that Martine and the White Giraffe have.
