We encounter again the beautiful descriptive style of Maretha Botha that has the musicality of classical stories. ‘Friends’ reminded me of the ‘Lion King’ and I almost heard drums in the distant background and the occasional laugh of the hyena, just like in the African bushveld. Because this book skillfully introduces southern Africa, it’s beautiful climate and wild animals, to young children. The story, its animal characters and beautiful, captivating illustrations come together to depict a perfect African image in any child’s mind.
‘Friends’, just like ‘Flame and Hope’, is book to enjoy and to share with young children as well as older ones. It speaks of friendship and adventure, of keeping your promise and protecting the needy.
Flame, the dog, and Hope, the bird, ill establish themselves in the hearts and minds of young and old readers.
A must have for any home or school library.
This book is really cool. The author clearly put a lot of personal knowledge about a foreign (to me) place, and the flavor of the book is cool and interesting. The use of animals as characters I think makes the story accessible for children even if they might not be familiar with Africa, and it might just spark an interest in learning more.
The artwork is simple, but in a nice way that fits with the tone of the story. As a kid, I know I would have tried to copy the pictures and draw them myself, so that's another fun route kids could go with this book.
I'd certainly recommend this for anyone trying to get kids interested in Africa. It's also just a nice story with a good message for kids.
