Yours Sincerely, Giraffe by Megumi Iwasa

30342907Dear You, Whoever You Are, Who Lives on the Other Side of the Horizon.
I am Giraffe. I live in Africa. I’m famous for my long neck. Please tell me all about yourself.
Yours sincerely,

Giraffe is bored, as usual. He’d love a friend to share things with. So he writes a letter and sends it as far as possible across the other side of the horizon. There he finds a pen pal called Penguin.

Giraffe knows nothing about penguins and his letters are full of questions. What does a penguin look like? Where is a penguin’s neck?

And so the letters begin to fly from horizon to horizon.

How did I get the book? Received from publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Review: Yours sincerely, Giraffe was a lovely book to read. I’d happily recommend, not just for the intended audience but anybody who’d like a sweet story about friendship. It’s also a book that I think also works well if your reading it aloud.

Giraffe is bored and decides to use the letter service by the also bored Pelican in search of a pen pal. Thus given both of them something to look forward to. The story is about Giraffe and Penguin’s friendship, how their correspondence impacts the animals around them and the question: “How do you imagine someone you’ve never meet?”

It is an endearing read, with simple but effective illustrations – both working together to make a charming and captivating story.
