The White Giraffe #4: The Elephant's Tale

It’s the first day of the winter holidays, and Martine has lots of fun planned – not least spending time with Jemmy, her white giraffe. But her plans for a peaceful break are shattered when a sinister man tells Martine and her grandma that their precious nature reserve, Sabuwona, is about to be repossessed. It’s up to Martine to save the home she loves. So when Grace has a strange vision about a unique herd of elephants, Martine travels to Namibia to learn their secrets. Could the elephants have the answer she’s looking for?

“There’s simply no-one better than Lauren St John for such vivid descriptions of Africa and the wild animals featured.”
