Description

From the author of the delightful children’s book, Antoinette and The Story of The Jellyfish Monster, comes the highly anticipated, second book in the Growing Up Antoinette Series by Alison McGregor: ANTOINETTE AND THE STORY OF THE INVISIBLE GIRAFFES (Friesen Press, Spring 2022).

Every book in the Growing Up Antoinette Series regals stories inspired by the author’s mother and her adventures growing up around the world.

While travelling to her new home in Tanzania, Antoinette is most excited to see her favorite animal – the giraffe. Her father, Mr. Barbour, points out all the awe-inspiring animals around her, but Antoinette only has eyes on the horizon for a giraffe and quickly loses faith that they even exist and believes they must be made up. 

Unbeknownst to her, their car is surrounded by giraffes the entire time, but they are so well camouflaged amongst the grass and trees that Antoinette cannot see them at all. Finally, one giraffe makes its presence known and even gives little Antoinette a quick kiss. After their big adventure, they continue their drive to their new home with a completely elated Antoinette who is still partially convinced that giraffes have invisible powers.

Created for readers ages one through eight and bursting with humor, ANTOINETTE AND THE STORY OF THE INVISIBLE GIRAFFES introduces themes of curiosity, wonder, and exploration. Parents and kids will delight in this adventurous tale as they travel through the Mikumi National Park in search of invisible giraffes.

Moved by the power of storytelling, Alison McGregor became interested in recording her family's history. Through a wonderful discovery, she found she was related to war heroes, world travelers, scientists, and mischief seekers.

Alison now lives with her own family in Innisfil, Ontario where she keeps her children entertained by telling them of their Granny Antoinette's adventures growing up all over the world in the children’s book series, Growing Up Antoinette. The series includes two books so far: Antoinette and The Story of The Jellyfish Monster and Antoinette and The Story of The Invisible Giraffes.

Aside from regaling stories from her mother’s adventuresome upbringing, she is constantly inspired by her two young children and mischievous mutt, Rupert, for weaving together more wonderful stories for children of all ages.
