The White Giraffe series

Wow–this series hits the mark for kids who love magic, animals, mysteries, and/or independence!  It’s by Lauren St. John, and I’ve read the 4 books in the series.  The White Giraffe is the first one.  Martine has lost her parents in a house fire, and goes to live with a grandmother she didn’t know existed.  Quite a shock, especially moving from North America to Africa.  She finds out she is central to a prophecy made in ancient times, meets a rare, wild, white giraffe, and adjusts to her new life.  She immediately encounters problems in the form of corrupt government officials and poachers.    These are just terrific books.
