Giraffe in the Trees - Book by Brendan McDonald
Gerry the Giraffe lives high up in the trees in beautiful Glendalough - overlooking the two lakes and magnificent Round Tower below.
Gerry has a secret – he can’t swim - and doesn’t want to tell any of the other animals. But when his friend Billy the Goat gets into difficulty on the lake Gerry, assisted by his friends Molly the Mouse and Ben the Butterfly, must face his fear of the water to save the day!
This beautiful story of friendship and facing your fears, set in Glendalough, shows that with a little help from our friends we can not only over-come our fears but even help others in the process!
