Description-
  • The landscape and history of Africa is brought vividly to life in this tale of a girl who travels on magical adventures with a mysterious white giraffe. 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.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Adjoa Andoh is a spellbinding narrator who gives each character a unique voice with nary a pause or break in rhythm. Her ability to handle the clicks of the story's African names adds realism to the telling. When her parents die in a fire, 11-year-old Martine leaves England to join the grandmother she didn't know she had on an African wildlife preserve. As she tries to find acceptance in this foreign environment, she discovers a gift for healing, clues leading to the arrest of a poaching ring, and a true friend in a "mythical" white giraffe. This exquisite tale full of exotic atmosphere is expertly told. N.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine
