About the Author

BEVERLEY NAIDOO was born in South Africa. Her first book, Journey to Jo'burg, was written in exile in Britain where it won The Other Award. It opened a window onto children's struggles under apartheid. In South Africa it was banned until 1991, the year after Nelson Mandela was released from jail. After 26 years Beverley could return freely to research in the country. No Turning Back and Out of Bounds followed. In her stories for older children, her characters from different backgrounds face tense conflicts and choices. The Other Side of Truth won her the Carnegie Medal, the first time in 64 years for a novel of African origin. Her books for younger children include The Great Tug of War, S is for South Africa (Children's Africana Honor Book, USA) and a re-telling of Aesop's Fables (Parents' Choice Silver Award, USA; USBBY Outstanding International Book) and Who is King?To visit Beverley Naidoo's website click here Piet Grobler grew up on a farm in Limpopo, South Africa.
