YOURS SINCERELY, GIRAFFE by Megumi Iwasa

Posted on Updated on

A bored giraffe asks a bored pelican to deliver a letter for him to the first animal he meets on the other side of the horizon. The first animal that Pelican meets is a mail seal who takes the letter to a penguin who is studying abroad on Whale Island. Thus an unusual friendship begins. Since Giraffe has never seen a penguin, he tries to imagine what Penguin might look like based on Penguin’s descriptions of himself. And eventually, the two friends will meet to see if their expectations were correct.

 A simple yet thought provoking story with both humor and heart.   This book is a quick read, but an enjoyable one. It will appeal most to elementary-aged readers.
