A Giraffe Goes to Paris by Mary Tavener Holmes

By Mary Tavener Holmes

Think a giraffe which may sail from Alexandria, Egypt, to Marseille, France, in a ship with a unique gap for her neck. think a giraffe that could stroll from Marseille to Paris in 41 days, donning trendy boots and a cape. think a giraffe that captures the eye of 100000 spectators in Paris as she parades throughout the urban, inspiring work, poetry, porcelain designs, or even an unique coiffure. think Belle, a present from the pasha of Egypt to the king of France in 1827, a giraffe who made background. This booklet provides Belle’s precise tale, instructed within the imagined phrases of her dedicated Sudanese caretaker, Atir, who observed her on her trip to Paris and stayed along with her until her dying eighteen years later. Illustrated with artifacts and work from the 19th century and with Jon Cannell’s jaunty paintings, Belle’s notable tale either captivates and informs. An author’s be aware and pronunciation advisor are integrated.
