OUR STORY MAGIC (article first published : 2006-12-2)

Adams Campus Bookshop and the University of KwaZulu-Natal Press recently launched Gcina Mhlophe’s latest collection of children’s stories titled Our Story Magic.

Our Story Magic is a hard-cover collection of ten enchanting and compelling tales written by Gcina Mhlophe and beautifully illustrated by artists from KwaZulu-Natal.

Gcina Mhlophe’s writing is published all over the world, and has been translated into German, French, Italian, Swahili and Japanese. Her honours include: The Fringe First Award at Edinburgh Festival, Joseph Jefferson Award in Chicago, OBBIE in New York, and Honorary Doctorates from London Open University and University of Natal in South Africa.

Her books with the University of KwaZulu-Natal Press are Stories of Africa, Love Child and Have you Seen Zandile?

Our Story Magic contains delightful titles such as Sun And The Moon; Queen Of The Tortoises; Moonlight Magic; Dad Is Eating Ashes; The Singing Dog; Jojela’s Wooden Spoon, and Sunset Colours.

Gcina’s purpose in writing was to honour and preserve the magic of African tales. The book retails at R145.
