Nicole was min lus om die vakansie saam met haar ma Weskus toe te kom. Sy wou liewer by die huis bly om Golden Acres, dié ryskool in Pretoria, se perdespringkursus by te woon.
Hoe sleg gaan haar vakansiefoto’s nie afsteek teen Chané se Mauritius-foto’s nie? En wat gaan sy heeldag doen tussen ’n klomp mariene bioloë wat net oor hulle navorsing kan praat?
Maar die Weskus is ’n verrassende plek . . .
Die aksiebelaaide opvolg op Emma En Die Geheime Gang.

Die kinders word nou aangemoedig om gesond te eet en ook sport te beoefen.

Emma besluit natuurlik om ondersoek in te stel, maar niks kan haar en Zoltan egter voorberei vir die gruwelike fonds wat hulle een aand in die koelsakke ontdek nie . . .

A stunning new classic from master storyteller Michael Morpurgo for readers of 9+, in the vein of PRIVATE PEACEFUL and THE BUTTERFLY LION This is a landmark new novel from the nation's favourite storyteller, set in the unique landscape of the Camargue in the South of France during WW2. There, a young autistic boy lives on his parents' farm among the salt flats, and the flamingos that live there. There are lots of things he doesn't understand: but he does know how to heal animals. He loves routine, and music too: and every week he goes to market with his mother, to ride his special horse on the town carousel. But then the Germans come, with their guns, and take the town. A soldier shoots a flamingo from the sky, and it falls to earth terribly injured. And even worse is to come: the carousel is damaged, the horses broken. For this vulnerable boy, everything is falling apart. Only there's a kind sergeant among the Germans - a man with a young boy of his own at home, a man who trained as a carpenter. Between them, perhaps boy and man can mend what has been broken - and maybe even the whole town...

Manyano School was a scary place, no kidding. The fence had holes big enough for a grown man to run through. And grown men did. The walls of the buildings were thirsty for paint. The buildings themselves looked scared. The schoolyard was full of weeds and rubbish: broken bottles, out-of-shape cans, skins from long-ago-eaten bananas, mango pips and things you could no longer tell what they had been before they all came and got vrot there. We never played in our schoolyard. Too scared of what might happen. And a lot happened in that yard ...and most of it wasn't nice stuff. Until ...
