As soon as Martine arrives at the reserve, she hears whisperings of a mythical animal living there, a white giraffe. No one has ever seen the animal, but it leaves footprints behind. Her grandmother insists that the white giraffe is just a legend, but then, one stormy night, Martine looks out her bedroom window straight into the eyes of the tall and silvery animal. The white giraffe is real! But why is everyone keeping the giraffe's existence a secret? To find out, Martine will use all of her courage and smarts, and an emerging gift for healing, in a daring adventure to save her new friend.More

Awesome! ( an Eleven Year Olds Review)
It is an exciting story with so many aspects of the african culture spread through it. The first three minutes of the story is very scaryso I would skip that part and I would suggest that you skip it too! The rest of the story is very good.
There isn't another book that I have listened to that compares with this one.
When the giraffe helped the girl escape from the snake.
I really felt for the characters. I held my breathe several times during the story. It kept me interested all the way through
