Book Summary:

Gigi the giraffe is a strong and independent young lady with a big heart. Adventurous and
daring, she flies her plane to exotic spots around the globe to satisfy her curiosity for new
sights and experiences.
Gigi believes in “girl power” and is very happy on her own, but she loves her friends dearly.
She always depends on them in her many explorations of this great big world!
In this first episode, Gigi’s birthday wish is to fly to Paris, France and go to the top of the
Eiffel Tower. So, she calls her friend Jean-Claude who lives there, and asks him to show
her around. Along the way she overcomes her homesickness and learns a valuable lesson
about how sometimes, even when your biggest wish comes true, you realize that other
things are more important to you, like your friends.
