Yours Sincerely, Giraffe
Yours Sincerely, Giraffe By Iwasa, Megumi Book - 2017 | First American edition

Dear Giraffe,

Thank you for your letter. You asked what I look like, but looking is a very odd thing.

At the moment I live on Whale Point, which is surrounded by sea, just like my home on Penguin Island. In the daytime, when the sun shines, the sea looks blue. But in the morning and the evening it looks completely different. And at night, it's different again.

And that's not all. No matter whether the sea looks blue or green or orange, when I scoop up a bucketful the water becomes transparent. Isn't that strange?

Perhaps it isn't looking that's strange, but the sea itself.

Or maybe it's the bucket.

But you asked what I look like. I think I am mostly black and white. Even when I climbed into a bucket, my feathers did not change. So I think that must be right.

Yours sincerely,
Penguin at Whale Point

P.S. I think you and I would get along. I'm looking forward to your next letter.
