The heart-pounding companion to the #1 Children?s Book Sense Pick The White Giraffe.
Just as Martine is settling into life at Sawubona, the wildlife game reserve, with her grandmother and Jemmy, her white giraffe, she must leave for two weeks on a school trip off the coast of South Africa. What begins as an exciting sea adventure quickly turns perilous when Martine and five of her classmates are thrown overboard into shark-infested waters. They are saved by a pod of dolphins only to end up marooned on a deserted island. The castaways, at odds with one another, must figure out not only how to survive, but how to save the dolphins that have mysteriously beached themselves on the island?s shore.
In a gripping tale of courage, friendship, and survival, Martine uses her healing gift and her bushcraft to help humans and animals alike. Look for Martine on the big screen?The White Giraffe will soon be made into a major motion picture from Walden Media and Twentieth Century Fox, starring Anna Sophia Robb.
