Dianne Hofmeyr, illustrated by Jane Ray
(Frances Lincoln Books)
‘Zeraffa Giraffa‘ is the true story of the King of France’s gift of a baby giraffe. Dianne Hofmeyr’s story enthrals and horrifies in equal measure. Imagine the feelings of a baby giraffe walking to Europe? Furthermore, consider the responsibility and fears of its young handler!
Jane Ray’s pictures suggest lush, exotic drama. It seems like we are part of the cavalcade. ‘Zeraffa Giraffa‘ is a picture book to read and treasure.
