LANGUAGE:English

" A children's book of an South African myth. Simple story, but it's aimed at children. (I'm not entirely sure how it ended up in my to-read pile.) A story about being true in heart and looking past facades. And also being a good person makes you worthy of a goddess' love. Cute, well illustrated. It made me curious as to the origins of the myth. " said.

" Mbaba Mwana Waresa, the rain goddess, is looking for a husband. She first looks for a suitor in the heavens but does not find herself attracted to any of the gods. She then searches for a husband within the mortals, finding Thandiwe, but she must first test him to be sure he is a worthy suitor. Thandiwe sees through her disguise and they marry, making him an immortal god. " said.

" A South African Myth inspired by a Zulu story from the Natal region, this is a beautiful and well- written story in which much has been added to and amended to the original. On saying this, in the aspects that Wolfson has added to, she has focused on integrating and celebrating customs and beliefs. I think the problem is that the clothing and other cultural signifiers are taken from an amalgamation of different tribes and not all from the Zulu culture. This is, however, acknowledged at the back. " said.
