Recommends it for: creches and pre-schools, families
Lulama is scooped up by a near sighted fish eagle and dropped far from home. She asks several animals the way and has to use her wits to outsmart predators. Children learning to count will love being smarter than the foolish baboons. (They can practice their skills in the middle of the story.) Van Heerden's delightful illustrations are too much fun to be scary.

Available in some African languages.
