RE: Bheki and the Magic Light (an action adventure story for 7-12 yrs) KU

A bullied herd boy becomes a hero.
Bheki and the Magic Light
The big day has arrived and Bheki’s house is flooded with electric light for the first time. He remembers the time, many years before, when his father gave him a light that really did seem to be magic. The torch brought him many friends and a new status in the kraal, until its beam began to fade. Bheki’s journey to bring power back to the magic light tested him to the limit but ended in magic of a different kind. It gave him a belief in himself.

At the end of the story, Bheki explains how batteries work and how electricity is generated and brought into homes across the world. [Image: kindle-smile.gif]

If you know of a child who is being bullied then this story might be inspirational.

Bheki and the Magic Light was first published in paperback by Penguin Books SA

The book sounds wonderful, Jan. I don't know of anyone to give it to but I promise you I will keep a look-out for that situation - one I feel strongly about.

Thanks. I've had some lovely reviews on Amazon.com, especially from teachers. The book was originally published by Penguin SA, but just prior to publication the very enthusiastic editor had to leave as her husband had been posted back to the UK, so it never really had a proper launch Sad

The .com reviews now appear when the book is listed instead of there being a blank on .uk. and having to scroll down for the .com reviews Smile. (If that makes sense Rolleyes )
