    ​Discover the incredible true story of the giraffe offered as a gift to Charles X of France by the Pasha of Egypt in 1827 - captured in Nubia, she travelled up the Nile and across the Mediterranean to Marseille, then walking the 885 kilometres to Paris with her entourage, astonishing the people of France who had never seen a giraffe before...

     

    A donation from sales of the book, cards and prints available on the day will go to the Giraffe Conservation Foundation.
