The Great Cage Escape

ENGLISH

This book was selected by the Gauteng Department of Education for inclusion in its current Projects 1980 (Library Rescources) and 2028 (LTSM)

When a parrot is found one morning on the doorstep of a pet shop, things take a dramatic turn.

"As pleasure-seekers and pain-avoiders like us, all sentient creatures deserve to be treated fairly and justly. Their most precious possession – that which allows “the spark of life” to glow brightly – is their freedom.

The Great Cage Escape captures poignantly the importance of freedom, and shows that heaven waits on the other side of the cage bars..."

​— Jonathan Balcombe: Animal Behaviourist and Author

Mannetjieshond.jpg

Mannetjieshond en die Gees van die Vaalhaas

AFRIKAANS

Novelle. 103 bladsye, kleur illustrasies.

Gedurende die 1990’s het Mannetjieshond en Boetie - en die Vaalhaas - op ‘n plasie tussen Kuilsrivier en Stellenbosch in die Wes-Kaap gebly. In daardie tyd het die skrywer, Louise van der Merwe, ook in die area gewoon en het sy die gebeure sien ontvou. Hierdie novelle is gebaseer op die feitelike agtergrond en is haar huldeblyk aan die wonderlike vriendskap tussen Boetie en Mannetjieshond en hulle hardnekkige wil om alle teenslae te oorleef.
