I recently had the privilege of meeting the author of this exciting book aimed at children 8 to 12 years.
Thabo the Space Dude is the story of an 11 year old boy whose loving family inform him that they are moving to Mars.
Feeling like his life could not get any worse he is forced to document his last days on Earth in a log book.
The story is written in log book format and highlights Thabo’s concerns about his move, if he will survive Mars boot camp, leaving his friends and whether he can steal a last kiss from the girl he likes.
A coming of age story that deals with the very real relatable issues that concern our tweens.
Interspersed with comic style illustrations, Lori-ann has captured the imagination of her young readers as they embark alongside Thabo on his life changing journey.
lighthouses. …. I love light houses.
I’m not sure where the obsession came from but there is something magical for me in the solid foundation of a lighthouse.
Papa and I have been lighthouse hunting over the last 3 years and as you all know our wedding and reception are at one of our local lighthouses.
On our recent road trip we discovered quite a few new lighthouses along our beautiful coastal shores and I purchased a copy of GeraldHobermansLighthousesofSouthAfrica to see which lighthouses we havent yet seen.
