Patterson was born on the same day as his best friend Raf, a giraffe. Because his grandfather is a zookeeper, Patterson gets to spend a lot of time with Raf. They share everything. That is, until Patterson goes to school for the first time and finds out that giraffes aren’t allowed there. Patterson misses Raf a lot, but also experiences many exciting new things. He even makes a new friend: Yous. Raf misses Patterson too and really wants to go to school with him. So, Petterson devises a plan to bring the giraffe to school and unite his two best friends.
