Book Launch: Fynbos Fairies by Antjie Krog

Fynbos FairiesPlease join us for the launch of a lavishly illustrated book of new children’s rhymes, Fynbos Fairies / Fynbosfeetjies, on Sunday 17 June at the Cape Town Book Fair.

The book features rhymes by Antjie Krog and illustrations by Fiona Moodie, who together tease out the shape and thoughts of a hithertoo-undiscovered species of flower fairy, the fynbos fairy – just as beautiful, delicate and unique to Africa as its floral namesake.

Here is the Afrikaans description of the book, accompanied by one of Moodie’s beautiful illustrations:

    Fynbos Fairy in the Calla LilliesDaar woon ‘n feetjie by elke soort Kaapse fynbos, en hier stel Antjie Krog hulle op haar unieke manier aan ons voor. Hulle werk en speel, hulle sorg vir die fynbos of maak gemors. Hulle lag, slaap, droom dis ‘n besige lewe vir ‘n gemiddelde fynbosfeetjie in die veld.

Both authors will be on hand to discuss and sign copies of their book, which will available in both English and Afrikaans.

We hope to see you there!
