Willow is not happy when her mum decides to relocate from the UK and set up a wildlife sanctuary in Africa.
Her life could not be more different, and she misses her friends and old life. Then, one day, a baby giraffe named Shadow arrives at the sanctuary and Willow begins to see the amazing possibilities her new life holds. A great story exploring change and adjustment.
