Yours Sincerely, Giraffe


What do you do when you are bored and need a friend? Why, write to somebody of course! That’s what Giraffe does. The results extend his world and understanding, and those of Penguin, the lucky recipient of his letter, and their friends and family in turn. Even Professor Whale is nonplussed!

This curious story is peppered with gentle humour. It holds a lovely, engaging message about friends, taking chances and our world of possibilities. Megumi Iwaga and Jun Takabatake have created a beautiful tale that supports the notions of ‘golden hearts’ and that anything is possible- the world is waiting.

We love ‘Yours Sincerely, Giraffe‘ and recommend it ‘sincerely’ to readers aged from about 6 years old.

‘Yours Sincerely, Giraffe‘ is a glorious early reading book for new readers, but will be loved by those lucky enough to share the title with them. Can Giraffe find a friend to help ease his loneliness? Where in the world might he search? How will he communicate? Who is out there?
