This is based on a genuine South African tree near the Higgley Piggeldy Farmyard in Kommetjie, jazzed up beautifully by an artist who “loves bright colours and happy pictures, and fresh sea air”. The happiest picture book I have met for a long time, with rich detailed pictures and a story that says Enjoy life and Care for others. Masses of visual details to explore and a real, positive message to outdoor living South African children. Splendid! Also available in Afrikaans as Madeliefie en die Boom Doer Ver.
