"In her usual animated fashion with plenty of dialogue, Dianne Hofmeyr has refashioned this folk tale from the African continent that is a lively read aloud. Grobler's scratchy characters are a mix of endearing humour and downright scariness. They certainly snare the attention...each scene offers a wealth of quirky detail to pore over."
