The Herd Boy

Foreword Review — Spring 2013

Young Malusi tends to his grandfather’s goats and sheep in South Africa. When a baboon attacks one of the lambs, Malusi must decide how to handle the situation. Is there a lesson in this experience for a little herd boy who dreams of being president? This gentle, atmospheric story of morals is as lovely to look at as it is to read. Ages six to ten.
