Late one night she sees the impossible: a white giraffe. She sneaks out to meet the animal and becomes friends with him. Encounters with injured animals show Martine that she has a special power to heal those animals, a gift. When her classmates see her gift, they suspect her of being a witch.
I thought this was a neat story, and the illustrations are beautiful. As a mother, the amount of sneaking out and danger that 11-year-old Martine encounters bothered me, but none of that scared my daughter. There's also a woman that reads bones to predict the future, so that might bother some people.
The book is recommended for ages 8-12, and I think that's pretty spot on. For a kid's book, this was a decent length, 180 pages. Some of the animals mentioned I'm not sure that age group would be able to identify, but it's a well written book. There are 3 other books in the series: Dolphin Song, The Last Leopard and The Elephant's Tale.
I think what I enjoyed most about this book is the vivid setting that the author creates. I could almost feel the heat and hear the animals. And the idea of riding a giraffe is a fun one, although staying on would definitely be a problem. The magical elements fit into the story fairly well, proceeding as they do from native beliefs expressed through Grace, a Zulu sangamo (healer). The story is an interesting one as Martine befriends the giraffe and then has to deal with her ability to heal as well as poachers and mean kids at school. Recommended.
