For 5 - 10 age group with non-interfering English translation of colloquial Afrikaans dialogue.



 



In OOM KALLAS AND THE TORTOISES (Bumble Books), Claerwen Howie has much information to share with young readers about tortoises. The whole situation becomes far more exciting and frightening when a fire sweeps through the Cape mountains. Thanks to gallant fire-fighters and water-bearing helicopters, and Oom Kallas’s bravery, many tortoises are rescued. A reality adventure, enriched with Meg Jordi’s colour pictures.
