This book is about friendship and the distinctions of living in different parts of the world. A giraffe that lives in Africa meets a pelican who is a mailman. Since the giraffe is bored, she sends a letter to the first animal the pelican can find on the other side of the horizon. The letter passes on to a seal who gives it to a penguin. He reads the letter and even though he does not understand it he writes back, and becomes the giraffe's pen pal. Although they do not know what each other looks like, the giraffe decides to meet her new friend disguised as a penguin!

This is a very sweet early chapter book about the unlikely friendship between a penguin and a giraffe. The story itself is adorable, plus I love any book in which letter writing is a major plot point, and the illustrations are excellent. A great selection for new chapter book readers.

An unexpected and delightful look at friendship, distance, time, and dedication all rolled into one sweet story about the unlikely friendship between a giraffe and a penguin. Wait, a giraffe and a penguin? How did they find each other, and how will they manage to become friends?
All these questions, and more, are answered by this clever story.
