This title was commissioned by the Save our seas foundation to educate children about the Great White Shark, a truly magnificent creature, and its food chain. It is part of the "Rethink the Shark" campaign. This is a true story about Nicole, the Great White Shark which caused quite a stir after being tagged in South African waters, and then, to everyone's amazement, she was tracked swimming to Western Australia. The trip of more than 11 000 kilometres took only 99 days for this 3.8-metre shark. Remarkably, six months later she was observed back in South Africa. Nicole, who was named after Australian actress Nicole Kidman following her Aussie adventure, made the fastest recorded return-trip across an ocean of any marine animal. Like many sharks, Nicole is rather partial to fish, which is how she lands up in a bit of a pickle with some trek fishermen in this story. In South Africa, trek-net fishing has been practiced for centuries and is a skill passed down the generations. Great Whites are only occasionally caught in trek nets, and are usually set free. Read this title to find out about Nicole’s big day out fishing! The story is written in rhyme and aimed at 3 - 7 year olds.
Peter, Pamela and Percy in the big spill is a children's story written in rhyme and aimed at 3 – 7 year olds. The title is based on the true story of the ship 'Treasure' which sank in June 2000 just North of Cape Town and caused an oil slick that harmed thousands of sea birds. People came from far and near to help rescue the penguins in an enormous clean-up operation. In order to buy time to clean the beaches and the sea, aproximately 16000 penguins were shipped from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth by truck to swim back to CT (with some luck, because no one knew for sure what they would do, but they were counting on their strong homing instinct). The whole of South Africa tracked the progress of these 3 rescued penguins, Peter, Pamela and Percy, who were equipped with tracking devices, as they swam home.
