Tshepo is a boy who wishes he was as tall as a beautiful tree. He plants himself in the ground, waters himself, and magically grows into one. But as a tree, he soon comes to realise why it's good to be a little boy, at least for now.

The story is funny, poignant and surprising, and fuses the mythical and the domestic in a quintessentially African fairytale sure to become a modern classic.

Told in Xhosa, and accompanied by an English translation, this book is about the worries of growing up and belonging.
