St.George, Judith. Zarafa. Illustrated by Britt Spencer. Philomel Books: 2009. ISBN: 9780399250491.

This book has pictures that were painted. This book is about a giraffe who is a gift to someone in Paris. This giraffe was from Africa. Her name was Zarafa and she was courageous to every one. Zarafa was too little to travel when she was little, but when she was bigger she started her trip to France. She started on a sail boat down the Nile River and then the Mediterranean Sea to get to France. She also walked 500 miles by herself to get to Paris. I liked this book because it had a lot of details because it had how she started and how many times she went on water and how she got there. The book also made you kind of tired because the book was kind of dull in ways you didn't want to read it. I would recommend this book to little kids about four to six because it has babyish pictures. Little kids can think what they want to happen to the characters.
