Look, a new book out by Sandy Mitchell. Available at Blossom for R135.
"Gertrude cannot stop wondering about the way people talk about sheep.
With sayings like “the black sheep of the family”, and “just like sheep”, she feels
it might be better to go and live with the farm family. But soon the novelty wears off
and when Gertrude gets stuck in a compromising situation, who will save her?
Feeling Sheepish is a heartwarming tale about standing out and fitting in!
Included with every book is a Gertrude soft toy.
Getrude soft toys are hand-made locally by Montagu Sew & Sew, a woman’s collective also responsible for the limited edition Moxyland toy featured on the cover of the Lauren Beukes book.
The toys were designed Chantel Burger, who has extensive experience doing wardrobe in the film industry and is owner of the Lappop clothing label."
