Grandma Ugogo’s Zulu Hut

Patricia Benzie-Morgan

Illustrations by Anna Evans

Grandma Ugogo's Zulu Hut is a delightful adventure about preserving culture and traditional values, maintaining distant relationships and being away from home for the first time. This vibrant story, interspersed with snippets of Zulu language, inspires love, trying new things and the importance of family bonds. The collaboration with the artistic genius of Anna Evans has brought the fairy tale to life.



"Adorable story with lovely images that delightfully capture the life in a Zulu village. Perfect for reading to young children to enhance cultural awareness and the Zulu phrases in the story are charming." 
– Karin Holmedal Byrne, Clinical Psychologist, Mother of four children
