Raf

Losing a favourite toy is every child's nightmare. Simply buying a new one is just not good enough. In this book Benjamin's favourite Giraffe Raf gets lost. Or does he? A few days later Benjamin receives postcards from Raf from far away. During his travels and adventures Raf gets suntanned and dirty, and he shrinks from a shower given by elephants- and no longer looks quite the same.

Anke de Vries writes subtly here about friendship and adapting to new situations. Charlotte Dematons has departed from her usual meticulous detailed style to go for warmly coloured close-ups. The homely atmosphere at Ben's home alternates with the wilder and freer style of the spreads set in Africa; and the appealing variety in perspective make the spreads look like works of art.
