A collection of ten illustrated fantasy short stories set in Cape Town, South Africa.
Meet a hitch hiking troll with a taste for pepper-spray and a homeless witch with a trolley full of secrets. Discover a book hoarding mermaid and a fridge full of frogs. And learn how to greet a witch – politely, of course. These stories describe encounters with every-day magic, where strange neighbours live in the flat next door or under the manhole cover you step on every day.
This collection includes the following stories:
In the Back Yard
Thorn Rose in Wynberg
Old Man’s Stuff
The Ink Witch
In the Oven
