The Magic Bojabi Tree

Author: Dianne Hofmeyr
Illustrator: Piet Grobler
Publisher: Frances Lincoln

There is a drought on the plains of Africa and the animals are hungry. A tempting tree is covered in red, ripe fruit but it is closely guarded by a large python who will only uncoil to release it if they can remember its true name. Many try and fail until Tiny Tortoise enters the frame. Piet Grobler’s distinctively drawn animals and stylishly patterned lettering for the various names suggested are incorporated into a beautifully designed book.
