  • Zarafa is the fascinating true story of a singular giraffe In 1827 the King of Egypt, in an effort to improve political relations, sent a giraffe to King Charles X of France as a gift This is the story of that giraffe s journey.Zarafa was captured at the age of 2 in North Africa Too young to travel yet to the capital of Alexandria, she lived in a small village, nurtured and milk fed by the villagers When she was old enough they sailed her down the Nile in a boat built specifically to transport h [...]


  • This was a lovely idea for a story but it just falls flat There doesn t really seem to be any point to the story A nice, much loved giraffe traveled from Africa to France You don t learn anything from the story than that This could have been a lovely opportunity to talk about the cultures she encountered along the way, other animals, or to teach some sort of life lesson about travel, adventure, or accepting the differences of others, even a little poetry in the writing would have helped It just [...]


  • I really enjoyed this non fiction picture book telling of the gift of a Giraffe from the ruler of Egypt, Muhammad Ali, to the king of France, King Charles X, in 1824 Such a gift required years of work, planning and help Many people along the journey had never seen such an exotic and strange creature, making the adventure that much exciting A fun colorfully illustrated and informative book that kids and parents will both enjoy.


  • I learned so much when I read this book because it is based on a true story however i felt that the story was poorly written I also thought that the illustrations were not as engaging as they could be.


  • Interesting true story I like Judith St George s books, so when I saw this one I had to read it I also like giraffes, so I was curious This would be a great story to share with kindergarten or first grade for animals.


  • True story about a giraffe that made the journey to France as a gift to the king This book can help explain in a colorful and interesting way to children what a non fiction book is all about It can also be used tohelp children locate far away places on a map.


  • Although the concept of the story was a good onea gift of a giraffe to the king of France, the story reads as if a first grader wrote it Sorry


  • Meh Too much description but not enough story Illustrations are cartoonish Yet, the story is rather descriptive and does not match the pictures Blah, just blah



  • Shorter than The King s Giraffe by Mary Jo Collier, with playful illustrations Not as much detail, but does contain some different information than the other book, and a map of the journey.



  • Cole and I really enjoyed this true story of a giraffe who was a gift from Muhammad Ali, the viceroy of Egypt, to King Charles X of France in 1824 Great illustrations, too


  • Lovely artwork to accompany this true story about a giraffe that traveled from the Sudan all the way to Paris, France.


  • A baby giraffe is kidnapped from her mother, put on a boat, and then forced to walk 500 miles to be given to the King of France.
