This full-colour graphic novel places Shaka's rule against the slave trade that was expanding from the East African coast, and the Europeans spreading inland from the south. It draws on the recent research of Prof. Dan Wylie and explores the rise to power of a shrewd young prince who had to consolidate a new kingdom through warfare, mediation, and political alliances in order to defend his people against the expanding slave trade.
All the research is expertly repackaged by the young South African graphic novelist Luke Molver and author Mason O'Connor.
Molver explains: “I believe that people are inherently the same: we feel the same emotions, burn under the same sun and bleed the same red. Shaka Rising is an epic tale set in a different age, but its characters and themes are as familiar to us as sibling rivalry, the heartache of a lost love, or simply a yearning to belong. It is as much a coming-of-age tale as it is a saga of war and politics.”

It is a time of triumph - and looming danger From the award-winning Luke Molver comes a new graphic novel that will continue to make South African history fun and interesting. The defeat of the slave-trading clans, as seen in Shaka Rising, was a good thing for the Zulu kingdom, but a dangerous new tide of colonisation was rising as foreign fortune hunters arrived from across the sea. Even within King Shaka's own lands, treachery loomed, threatening the balance of power. King Shaka is the second graphic novel featuring one of our biggest African heroes. We walk with him as he faces new challenges in a changing world, while he strives to shield his people from danger. The foreword of this colourful book is written by Dr Sibongiseni Mkhize, Chief Executive Officer of the South African State Theatre in Pretoria. This is the second graphic novel in the African Graphic Novel Series, created by the Pietermaritzburg-based consortium Story Press Africa, published by Catalyst Press, and distributed by LAPA. During May 2019, the first book in the series, Shaka Rising: A Legend of the Warrior Prince, won a major award in the USA. It was named a 2019 Honor Book by the Children's Africana Book Awards.

Letters are in Upper and Lower case, both large enough for small fingers to trace around to practise each letter shape. Each illustration includes a single sentence introducing an animal. The sentence structure is the same for each animal, to enourage reading due to the repetitive nature of the text. The names of each animal have been carefully selected as common names in Southern Africa. Built into each illustration is a series of items or actions that begin with the featured letter of the alphabet. Children are encouraged to find all of the things that begin with each letter. This aids in phonetic processing as each word needs to be said aloud to determine whether it begins with the correct letter.

The rich folklore culture of Africa has been passed down by word of mouth through countless generations. Dianne Stewart has a passion for collecting and retelling these stories, making them accessible to a whole new audience.

In The Guineafowl's Spots and Other African Bird Tales she has created a unique collection of African folktales, exclusively about birds. Drawn from across the continent, these tales often draw on human characteristics and are followed by African proverbs that illustrate various moral lessons.

This fascinating collection includes classic tales such as 'Why Flamingo Stands on One Leg' from Nigeria, 'The Laughing Dove' from North Africa, and the Xhosa tale 'The Bird That Could Make Milk'.

Beautiful illustrations by Richard Mackintosh bring to life the magic of the stories and the beauty of birds themselves. Many of the tales include additional facts on the featured birds.

Written with sensitivity and imagination, Hurry up Lebo is a wonderful, morally enriching story that takes the reader on a journey of discovery through the eyes of a twelve-year-old township boy.

Lebo doesn't go to school because he looks after his elderly, blind grandfather while his mother works. A daydreamer, Lebo has no friends, except for a spider to whom he talks. He loves stories, especially the ones his grandfather tells, and books, thanks to his aunt, who has taught him to read. He has a natural gift for music and dreams that one day he will make a mukimbe, a traditional xylophone and be able to play his own songs. He is also inventive, and builds a go-cart, hoping it will impress Pule, who is visiting her aunt next door.

But his cousin, Dintwe, has other ideas. A dropout with few prospects, Dintwe is jealous of Lebo's good nature and his ability to create things. He tries to move in on Pule, steals the go-cart and generally goes out of his way to disrupt Lebo. Then Lebo's beloved grandfather dies. It seems like the end of his world, but gradually, with the help of the sympathetic adults in his life, Lebo finds his feet again.
