I hope some of our prizewinning South African children’s books will be on your families’ holiday reading lists. They can be hard to spot in our book shops so do please make a point of asking for them by name. Our Exclusive Books IBBY SA Award winner, Fiona Moodie’s Noko and the Kool Cats (Tafelberg), had stiff competition from the two runners up,
Wendy Hartmann & Joan Rankin’s Sisi Goes to School and Other Stories (Human & Rousseau)
and Piet Grobler & Dianne Hofmeyr’s The Name of the Tree is Bojabi (Human & Rousseau).
All three books are world class – as is our 2015 IBBY Honour List picture book, Marita van der Vyver and Dale Blankenaar’s Rhincocephants on the Roof (Tafelberg).
