The Forest Fairies and the Great Battle by Margaret Roberts (Aardvark Press)
A cheerful South African picture book.



Where can I get it?

We like

No-one knows more about our South African environment and plants than Margaret Roberts, who brings her wide knowledge to bear on this, the latest in a series of children’s books. Through the story she manages to impart a lot of wonderful information, such as the uses of peppermint tea and why bees are so important.

We don’t like

This won’t appeal to every  child, as the language is quite sophisticated. Perhaps as something to read with your child.
