Zazi (aged 8) and Ziwelene (aged 6) are the great-grandchildren of Nelson and Winnie Mandela.
Zindzi is the youngest child of the Mandelas and was only 18 months old when her father went to prison. Here she answers questions from the two young children to tell the Grandad Mandela’s story.
“Why did Grandad go to jail?”
“Did Grandad have to have his birthday in prison?”
“Did Grandad have a plan to escape from his prison?”
This structure works highly effectively alongside Sean Qualls’ sandy-hued and textured illustrations.
