Shortlisted for the UKLA 2018 Book Award

Giraffe is bored, as usual. He’d love a friend to share things with. So he writes a letter and sends it as far as possible across the other side of the horizon. There he finds a pen pal—Penguin. Giraffe knows nothing about penguins and his letters are full of questions. What does a penguin look like? Where is a penguin’s neck? And so the letters begin to fly from horizon to horizon.

Reviews

The sentences in this book are extra scrumptious. Paula Green, Poetry Box

This is a rare book: joyful, ingenuous, playfully earnest, but without a whiff of studied cuteness. Kirkus (US)
