Bertie Lost from Blue and Bertie by Krystina Litten


Bertie’s life in his herd is simple and monotonous; he wakes up, eats, drinks, and naps. But one day, he wakes up and realises he’s overslept, and his herd have moved on, he is alone. Until, that is, he meets Blue. Blue is also a lonely giraffe and together they team up to help Bertie find his way home.
