Township Tales

A generously-sized book containing five animal stories, gently linked, all set in a ‘township’ (probably near Cape Town). These stories are all told from the animals’ point of view and they are about a stray dog, a chicken factory, a racing pigeon, a dog buried alive and an injured carthorse. True to life and full of compassion, with accurate observation and the fact that “animals have rights”. The soft-edged colour pictures provide useful atmosphere. Suitable for middle primary readers
