Reviews

Mystery, intrigue and suspense dominate the story of 11 year old orphaned Martine who is sent to live with her grandmother on a game reserve in South Africa. Reading this meticulously worded, cleverly crafted and flawless novel proved to be a real joy. This book has the hallmark of a children's classic and would make a delightful film. * Marion Griffiths, ARMADILLO on THE WHITE GIRAFFE * enthralling... we may not all have a white giraffe to make life easier, but his book reminds us that even the most miserable situation can get better. * John Millen on THE WHITE GIRAFFE * St John's descriptions of southern Africa provide a sumptuous backdrop ... top-drawer adventure storytelling, with an added helping of fantasy thrown in. It all makes for a genuinely gripping tale that will warm even the coldest of hearts. * Joe Melia, Waterstone's Bristol Galleries on THE WHITE GIRAFFE * A thrilling mix of heartfelt eco-friendly adventure and natural magic ... perfect for 8-11s. * Amanda Craig, THE TIMES on THE LAST LEOPARD * A deep sense of humanity runs through the tale which encompasses themes such as loss, bereavement, guilt, courage, love and kindness * Primary Teacher * St John's refined prose and assertive young protagonists convey a profound regard for the beauty and magic of the vast African backdrop ... a hugely enjoyable and gripping summer read for both girls and boys. * THE BOOKSELLER on THE LAST LEOPARD *
