★ WHITE GIRAFFE AND DOLPHIN SONG 2-IN-1

A 2-in-1 of the first two White Giraffe stories.

‘St John brings Africa to vivid life in this tale of a young girl sent to a new life; Martine’s sense of cold alienation set against the hot safari landscape . . . the white giraffe, an albino rarity prized by game hunters – the perfect leit-motif for this fragile, stirring story.’ Guardian
