Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
The Jardin des Plantes, France's "most elegant zoo " was also the home of France's first giraffe, a gift from the pasha of Egypt to France's King Edward X, in 1826. How La Girafe got to her new home is recounted in Nancy Milton's The Giraffe That Walked To Paris. The story, based upon facts detailed in an afterword, is enlivened with dialogue and Roger Roth's delightful illustrations. On the final page readers will find a photograph of the stuffed giraffe, as it is currently displayed in La Rochelle, on the west coast of France.
