Candlewick Press,
Pub. Date:
First edition.
A lonely servant girl finds solace in song--and unexpected long-necked friends at her window--in an utterly charming tale of kindness rewarded. Poor Delphine is all alone. She has no family and no friends, and as a servant in Queen Theodora's palace, her life is full of work. Fortunately, Delphine loves to sing, and if her spirits are down, songs bring her comfort and cheer. When young Princess Beatrice comes to live at the palace, Delphine is excited at first, but the unkind princess only makes Delphine's life more miserable. Then, one night, as Delphine sings out her sorrows, she draws the attention of a dozen giraffes! Delphine is delighted to have friends, but joining them on an outdoor adventure leads her to accidentally cross the princess, and Delphine's situation in the palace goes from bad to worse. Will singing be enough to help her now?
