Miki is a baby meerkat who lives with his Mama in a zoo.
When a new family move in next door, Miki hopes for a friend to play with. But the new arrival is different to Miki in every way. She’s tall, he’s small; she sleeps standing up, he sleeps in a burrow; she eats from the freetops, he eats from the ground…
However, Miki and Raffa the giraffe soon realize that for every physical difference between them, there’s a similarity and compatibility in what they both enjoy – or are scared of! And seeing from the world from someone else’s point of view might be fun after all.

Sarah J. Dodd grew up in the north of England and spent her time walking with her family, reading as many books as she could get her hands on, or dreaming about horses. Her first career was in Science, with a degree in Environmental Science and a PhD in Plant Ecology. Then she discovered her passion for working with children and became a primary school teacher. After living in Australia for a while, she returned to the UK and settled in Lancashire, where she still lives. When she became a full-time mum, she began to pursue her childhood dream of becoming an author, and her first book was published in 2008. A lover of mountains, maps and mysterious paths, she will try anything once and loves to get her hands and clothes dirty in the name of fun and adventure. She is the author of Beyond The Setting Sun, Just Like You, The Lion Picture Bible and Legs.
