Sunday Times Children's Book Of The Week

The White Giraffe by Lauren St John

Although its plot developments are sometimes ploddingly explained, and its research sometimes conspicuous, this tale nevertheless introduces a glorious creature and enjoyable characters: Martine�s grandmother, her Zulu gamekeeper and a fortune-telling African wise woman. And it fulfils wishes common to many children: to love and be loved by animals, to outwit bullies, and to be daring, independent and triumphant. NICOLETTE JONES
