When Siyabulela is transformed into a dragonfly by a wicked spell, it is up to Ndiliswa to defeat their enemies to save the prince.
The Gruffalo has become one of the most-loved children's characters of all time and this 10-CD collection brings him, and many of his equally brilliant friends from Julia Donaldson's collection of books, to life in audio format.
Perfect for long journeys and for keeping children entertained whatever the weather, among those delivering the soothing, rhyming stories are Imelda Staunton, Alexander Armstrong and even Julia Donaldson herself! A Squash and a Squeeze is a charming story; while Room on the Broom is hilarious; and The Snail and the Whale is quite rightly regarded as a children's classic.
There is even The Gruffalo Song and Other Songs included, a CD which contains some of Julia's very own fun-filled action songs for children aged 3 and over.

Meer as ’n honderd jaar nadat die boek Peter and Wendy deur J.M. Barrie in Engeland gepubliseer is, verskyn Marié Heese se opvolgstorie Peter Pan en Laurie by Protea Boekhuis in Suid-Afrika. Dit word gelyktydig in Engels en Afrikaans vrygestel, met sjarmante illustrasies deur Marjorie van Heerden. Marié Heese het reeds verskeie kinderstories gepubliseer en vertaal. In hierdie storie hou sy redelik naby aan die atmosfeer en verteltrant van die oorspronklike werk. Natuurlik is Peter nog net soos hy was, avontuurlik en vry, maar die meisie wat hy dié keer na die Nimmerland met hom saamneem, is ietwat anders as die moederlike Wendy. Sy nuwe feetjie-maat heet Klokkelokkies. Daar is ander Verlore Seuns, en ander vyande om te trotseer, veral die groteske reus, Half-gevreet, leier van die Grillergaaie, wat net ’n halwe kop het en die ore van sy oorwonne vyande pekel, aan ’n tou om sy nek hang en kou. Hy soek Peter se ore vir sy versameling. En daar is dinosaurusse wat die eiland wil oorneem …

Karl Kielblock het verskeie boeke geskryf, waaronder die Lafras Cuyper-reeks baie bekend is en wyd versamel word. Dit handel oor seeavonture in diens van twee oorlogvoerende moondhede vroeg in die 19de eeu. Hierdie is die sesde boek in die reeks, propvol opwinding, spanning en avontuur! ’n Besoek aan Venesie – dit is ’n droom wat waar word vir die beroemde kaperkaptein Lafras Cuyper. Die droom word egter ru onderbreek toe Lafras een aand in die donker stegies aangeval word. Voor hy die raaisel oor die aanval kan oplos, roep Napoleon hom terug na Parys. Lafras moet Venesie verlaat – en ook die aanvallige Justina, wat sy hart so gou verower het. Hy moet met die Turkse goewerneur gaan onderhandel oor drie Franse offisiere wat as gyselaars aangehou word. Tussendeur al die lewensgevaarlike avonture, verskyn die beeld van Justina kort-kort voor Lafras. Hy moet haar weer sien. Hy moet weer terugkeer na Venesie … en sy aanvallers. Die verhaal van Lafras Cuyper is op feite gebaseer.

"A masterpiece" Marian Keyes "A fierce torrent of a book, raging and forceful and gripping. I was swept away" Kiran Millwood Hargrave "Her prose cuts and rages and her vision of the Sea Witch is truly transformative" The Observer. Think you know the story of the Little Mermaid? Think again... Deep beneath the sea, off the cold Irish coast, Gaia is a young mermaid who dreams of freedom from her controlling father. On her first swim to the surface, she is drawn towards a human boy. She longs to join his carefree world, but how much will she have to sacrifice? What will it take for the little mermaid to find her voice? Hans Christian Andersen's original fairy tale is reimagined through a searing feminist lens, with the stunning, scalpel-sharp writing and world building that has won Louise her legions of devoted fans.
