RE: Announcement of a book and the Book Launch by An 8-Year Old Female South African Author in Johannesburg
An 8-year old called Stacey Fru has written a book. Her book is titled “Smelly Cats”. This book is about two cats who are cousins. It portrays the common challenges of different socio-economics, academic and religious backgrounds in which the two survived. In this book, Stacey portrays the difference in places where the two cats stay and how this affected their daily lives.
Smelly Cats also depicts that even though the cats come from the same family, they have differences in friendship, love, hate, care, economic backgrounds and behaviour due to who they are. As her characters behave both naughty and badly, Stacey tells us the role of school discipline in their lives.
The constant fights between the two are real situations in daily lives. However just like in real (human) life, fights are a vital spice of life that do not last forever. Stacey, concludes her book by stating that “Life is not a bed of hatred. You grow better when you fight to spread love and have fun in a child’s way”.
Stacey has two confirmed Book Launches:
The first launch is at Sacred Heart College Johannesburg on the 16th July 2015 at 6:00 for 6:30pm
And the next at the University of Witwatersrand on the 8th of August (time to be confirmed for late afternoon).
