Patterson, a small boy, has a big friend: Raf, a giraffe. They are born on the same day, live next door to each other and are inseparable. When they reach the school age, they are both very excited. On his first school day, Patterson stuffs his backpack with lots of treats to satisfy Raf’s big appetite only to find out that his pet giraffe will not be following him to school after all. Patterson gradually learns to enjoy school and even makes a new friend: Yous. Raf, however, feels left out in the zoo. That’s when Patterson comes up with a brilliant plan to bring his pet giraffe to school and enjoy the company of his two best friends!
