About the Chronicles of Ubuntopia
‘★★★★★ for Balla and The Forest of Legends! It is a beautiful book about making the world better together.
Aimée helps Balla to defeat the fog, and together they support each other. Young and old.’ – Birdykids
‘The typical African experience, savannas with elephants, lions and drums, is very clearly recognizable, and that
makes it a bit Disney-like at first sight. But, to be fair, the stories are much more profound and mystical.’ – Afrika Nieuws
