Jun Takabatake is one of Japan’s best-loved children’s illustrators. His illustrations have been exhibited throughout the world, and he has won many international awards, including the Graphics Prize (Bologna Children’s Book Fair), a Japan Picture Book Award and the Kodansha Award for Picture Books.
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.
