    The story of Nomusa the daughter of a Zulu chief with six wives Although Nomusa is a helpful daughter to her mother, she prefers the activities of boys to those of girls I read it in childhood and as was generally the case, I was interested in a girlhood that was rather different from my own The idea of eating things like grasshoppers major ick factor then Come to think of it, it s still an ick factor.

    My kids, ages 9, 7 and 4, would have given this stars than me I just wasn t gripped A teacher loaned it to me over the summer and we read it after my brother spent some time in South Africa Good exposure to an African tribal culture.
