Honestly Mom borrowed this for me because of the penguin on the front. I am glad she did. It was a fun read about a giraffe who sends a letter on the Pelican Express to the other end of the horizon. A penguin receives it and they become pen pals. The book is their letters. They do eventually meet. The giraffe even tries to dress like a penguin but um, yea that didn’t work.
I liked that there was a penguin. It was interesting that a penguin and a giraffe spoke the same language. It was a fast read and a good way to make my day better.
I recommend this book for class libraries. It would be neat if the class did penpals with another class from a different country or state. I also recommend this to people who like giraffes and penguins.
