Ben and his cuddly friend, Raf, are inseparable. Then one day, Raf disappears. Ben looks everywhere, but Raf is not to be found. Ben is too sad to go outside and play in the snow, until a postcard clatters into the mailbox. Postcard follows postcard as Raf journey through Africa. He meets tall pink flamingos, long-trunked elephants, vine-swing monkeys, and giraffes.
