Summary
Zarafa is a beautiful and gentle giraffe, so wonderful, in fact, that the ruler of Egypt offers her as a gift to the king of France. But how to get her there? Why, she sails up the Nile by felucca, crosses the sea by brigantine, and, yes, walks the last five hundred miles to Paris. People love it. And they love her, meeting and greeting her along the way, cheering her on. Afterward, the grateful French king places Zarafa in his own royal garden, where all of Paris comes to visit and love her. Judith St. George brings this amazing-but true-journey to life with help from the whimsical art of Britt Spencer
