Publisher's Summary

Baby Ruva lives with her giraffe family in a beautiful jungle. One sad day, she is kidnapped and taken across the ocean to a horrible zoo. Thanks to four wise and magical friends she has met along the way, the baby giraffe is managing to survive, but time is running out. The zookeepers are going to kill her, so they can use her cage for a new shipment of hyenas. Now she and her friends must outwit their evil captors and find their way back to "the warm place", which is their home in Africa.

This Newbery Award-winning author of The Ear, the Eye, and the Arm, an ALSC Notable Recording, and A Girl Named Disaster has a talent for captivating young readers with nonstop suspense. Combined with Lisette Lecat's sensitive narration, the incredibly horrid bad guys and wonderful heroes keep listeners glued to their seats until the very end.
