Pretty Salma by Niki Daly
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"Salma, pretty Salma, please go to market for your old granny who loves you so." This up-to-the-minute "Red Riding Hood" story is set in a South African township with market traders, a crazy-eyed rooster, Anansi the storyteller and a no-good, slick, sly stranger calling himself Mr Dog. The comedy, thrills and shivers of the familiar story lead to a reassuring ending, and Niki Daly's tongue-in-cheek storytelling and hilarious pictures are flavoured with melon, ice-cream and fun.
