An ultimately inspiring story of how giraffes have dealt with modern climate change, beautifully told and illustrated - and marking the launch of an exciting new series. Once, this season of rains was the season of giraffes... In this powerful picture-book, bestselling children's author Nicola Davies writes in collaboration with conservationist Kisilu Musya to explain how one of the world's best-loved animals has dealt with the challenges of climate change.

Giraffes were once a part of daily life in Niger - but after severe droughts one year, when the rains eventually return, the giraffes are nowhere to be seen. However, as award-winning artist Emily Sutton's magnificent illustrations capture, The Beauty of Giraffes ultimately has a hopeful, celebratory story to share ... and an important point to make about how human beings can change for the better.

"Nicola Davies is one of the best children's writers in the business." Huffington Post"Emily Sutton is one of our greatest children's illustrators." The Times
