You're A Star Lolo

By Niki Daly

Follow Lolo as she creates an amazing soup for Mama, looks after snails in her garden, has a night-time adventure and goes to the seaside with Gogo.

From the Rainbow Nation, four sparkling stories that introduce a lovable new heroine.

Lolo is an ordinary little girl who lives in a South African township with her mother and Granny Gogo. But every day brings fun, adventure – and occasional mishaps.

"With its combination of gentle humour and warm family relationships, and of course, Niki Daly's own black and white illustrations at every turn of the page, this one is a sheer delight."



"The outstanding feature of this series of books is that very few books for children of this age combine highly readable tone and a feisty young character of colour."



"Ideal for newly independent readers to increase their confidence, each page is illustrated with characterful black-and-white illustrations that bring the stories to life."
