This is an enchanting story set in Africa, on a game reserve. The sights and smells of the savannah come pouring from the pages.
Martine is newly orphaned and goes to live with her grandmother – who doesn’t seem to want her even though she sent for her. Martine’s adventures in coming to terms with her new life are enhanced by her meeting the legendary white giraffe. But mysteries surround her. In a combination of fantasy and crime thriller, Lauren St John weaves a story that young readers, and those young at heart, will thoroughly enjoy.
One gripe. I hate it when the book finishes a long way from the end of the pages… and then you find a chapter from the next book to pad it out. Just give me the story, please!
