      This charming picture book tells the true story of Belle, a giraffe presented by the great pasha of Egypt to the king of France, Charles X, as narrated by Atir, her Egyptian caretaker. But how to transport a giraffe all the way from Egypt to Paris? First, she had to be transported down the Nile along with her entourage of three cows (to produce milk for her to drink) and two antelopes (to keep her company). Then, a special hole had to be constructed in the deck of the ship, so Belle could be kep [...]

      An interesting story and one that I almost feel should have been a non-fiction book had more information been added. Very detailed illustrations!

      Did you know that in 1827, the Pasha of Egypt gave a gift to the King of France -- a live giraffe named Belle? And that this giraffe's keeper helped her get sailed down the Nile (complete with a hole cut in the boat for her neck), land in Marseilles, and WALK across the French countryside to Paris (an 8-week journey that included specially-made walking boots for Belle and a crew of men, cows, and antelope)? What a story! Her attendant, Atir, who tells this story, was a real person, but his narra [...]

      Level: PrimaryRationale: Giraffes are prominent on Natalie’s interest inventory. She mentions them at least twice, and in the space for places she’s like to take a trip to, Paris is the first on her list. So this book seemed an awesome combination of two of Natalie’s favorite subjects. Besides artistic illustrations, the book includes some cool educational elements, including comparing the narrator’s home city/country of Alexandria, Egypt, and their trip destination of Paris, France.Hook [...]

      This book, based on a true story in 1827, tells the tale of a giraffe named Belle. She was a present from the pasha of Egypt to the king of France. The story was told by Atir, Belle's caretaker throughout the journey. The story takes you through how they started their journey on a ship and finished by telling how they walked all the way from Marseille to Paris in eight weeks. When they finally got to Paris everyone was in awe of Belle, as they had never seen a giraffe before. This story has some [...]

      I really enjoyed this book - I was a French minor in college, and in all our studies of history and culture, somehow I never heard this story!Fast forward several years, and I discovered it while looking for storytime ideas. It's not really suitable for a storytime, but instead I may end up making a whole program about it! Learn a little about France, about Egypt, about giraffes, and - most importantly - challenge the kids to walk every day and keep track of their distance, and see if they can r [...]

      Recommended for Grades 2-6. A nice slice of history-- Belle the giraffe was a gift from the Pasha of Egypt to the King of France back in 1826. It was quite a fete to bring a giraffe that far-- it took three cows to feed her milk and a couple of antelope to keep her company. When she arrived-- she was an instant celebrity! I now understand the reason behind all the giraffe art of that time period!

      This was a fascinating short book about the true story of Belle, a giraffe sent to the king of France as a gift from the King of Egypt. Can you imagine the sensation caused by a giraffe, sailing across the Mediterranean and walking through France (there was no other way to get her there!) on her way to Paris with her handlers? A great book to inform and stir the imagination, as she certainly did for the Parisians, and the entire continent, who had never seen a giraffe before.

      This is about a giraffe named belle. She went to Paris and visited many different places over there. She met the countess and the king and ate rose petals from their hands. The owner and Belle liked the moonlight and they spend a lot of time outside watching it. Paris was excited to see Belle and they prepared the city by making many souvenirs of her. This is good for IMMIGRATION.

      I thought I had already read this book but there must be a similiar one out there. I am going to look through my shelves. Very cute book and a great story about a giraffe who travels from Egypt to Paris with a little help from his friends. I looked it up and there is another story called Zarafa the Girafffe Who Walked to the King.

      Until reading this book I never had heard of Egypt giving France a giraffe. I am sure like in the story it was very difficult to transport a giraffe during that time in history. Although with each day more and more people were able to be apart of Belle's story because they got to travel and see her. Belle was beloved by many especially Atir. Her story is an amazing one!

      The story of Belle, the giraffe who was given by the pasha of Egypt to the king of France in 1827 and was the first giraffe ever seen in France. Narrated by Atir, Belle's Sudanese caretaker, who stays with her for 18 years in Paris's Jardin des Plantes. Appealing story and illustrations.

      This is a very charming story of a giraffe given as a gift to the king of France, and brought by various means to Paris in the early 19th century. It is actually a quite nice book for the Summer Reading Program about traveling and seeing the world.

      I really like the story of Belle the giraffe but I only gave this book 3 stars because we don't love it as a read aloud. I think other authors have written about Belle and I would be curious to see if the format of their books makes for a more enjoyable read aloud.

      What a great and interesting book! We read this for a bedtime story, then had to go back and look at all the pictures again. True story of a gift given to the king of France and includes lots of 1800s pictures.
