Description

The heart-pounding companion to the #1 Children’s Book Sense Pick THE WHITE GIRAFFE.

Just as Martine is settling into life at Sawubona, the wildlife game reserve, with her grandmother and Jemmy, her white giraffe, she must leave for two weeks on a school trip off the coast of South Africa. What begins as an exciting sea adventure quickly turns perilous when Martine and five of her classmates are thrown overboard into shark-infested waters. They are saved by a pod of dolphins only to end up marooned on a deserted island. The castaways, at odds with one another, must figure out not only how to survive, but how to save the dolphins that have mysteriously beached themselves on the island’s shore. In a gripping tale of courage, friendship, and survival, Martine uses her healing gift and her bushcraft to help humans and animals alike.

      • bioText: The African setting of Lauren St. John's first novel, The White Giraffe, as well as Dolphin Song, is very personal to the author. She grew up in Zimbabwe and lived on a farm that was part game reserve. She says that if her books encourage "even one person to want to help wildlife or to visit or want to know more about Africa, that would make [her] incredibly happy." Ms. St. John lives in London, England. Look for The White Giraffe on audio from Listening Library.

      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Narrator Adjoa Andoh brings the rhythm and speech patterns of South Africa to this story of six children marooned off the coast of Mozambique. Her undulating voice speeds and slows with the rhythm of St. John's story. Andoh brings intensity to her portrayals of Martine and her schoolmates as they struggle for survival and hope for rescue when a school trip goes dreadfully amiss. Listeners can hear the character of Martine gain confidence as she metamorphoses from reluctant student to quick-thinking life saver. The story weaves down-to-earth messages on environmental concern and self-awareness with a fantastical world in which a white giraffe and dolphins have remarkable abilities. A.R.
