Art by Gillian Mathew
Thandi is a little girl who lives in a small village in Africa. Her village is dry and wrinkly – for there has been no rain. The elders believe that the village has been cursed, and only a chameleon can bring them rain. What will Thandi do now? Will she be able to help?
Join Thandi in her quest to save her village from drought, and get to know her unusual friends. With a curse, a gold pebble, some intriguing characters and of course, a happy ending, this mythical story from South African folklore has all the right ingredients to delight both the young and the old alike!
