Summary

An amusing story with charming illustrations which retells—with a twist—the Nguni creation legend about why the giraffe has such a long neck. The little giraffe in this book is a very inquisitive character determined to find out everyone’s secrets. His curiosity leads him right across Africa with only a faithful oxpecker for company. Giraffe’s thirst for knowledge brings unexpected results--whether for better or worse depends on your point of view! A great read-to-and-discuss book, and a fun, accessible reader for children from five years up. Author’s and illustrator’s royalties all go to the Trust for African Schools.
