Three new Book Dash books published!

During lockdown in April 2020, I took part in the first-ever Virtual Book Dash as the team editor. I lurked pedantically as writers Mathapelo Mabaso, Refiloe Moahloli and Sam Wilson; illustrators Jess Jardim-Wedepohl, Subi Bosa and Thea Nicole de Klerk; and designers Chenél Ferreira, Natalie Pierre-Eugene and Thokozane Mkhize created three brand-new free African children's stories under the brilliant guidance of the Book Dash team.

The results of Book Dash 15 are now published: read, download and share The Things that Really Matter, Where's that Cat and Lesedi's Sandbox.

Book Dash is determined to get high-quality African children's books into every child's home, in South Africa and beyond. Teams of volunteer writers, illustrators, designers and editors have so far got together to produce over a hundred children's books that are free to download, distribute and print.
