A Kite's Flight by William Gumede
In an unexpected and bold move, William Gumede brings you his first ever children's book, A Kite's Flight.
This richly illustrated book tells the story of how Andile and his father make a beautiful kite. While flying the kite, its string breaks releasing the kite and taking readers on an epic journey across Africa. From the thundering Victoria Falls and the snow tops of Kilimanjaro, to the Sahara deserts and ancient Egyptian Pyramids, follow the kite's flight over some of the great landmarks of Africa!
In line with Jacana Media's commitment to growing a culture of reading in South Africa, this book is published in nine languages to allow children to read in their home language.
