“This delightful diary-style book charts an artistic journey of two artists who spend a month together painting self-portraits. Anne Labovitz and Carole Best live in different countries but as friends and artists share many things. It’s a great read – lively, funny, poignant and serious all at the same time. A peek into the working lives of two contemporary artists.”
HONORAL AND ZARINA: A TALE OF TWO FRIENDS
A story following a few weeks in the life of a wildebeest and zebra herd, as seen through the eyes of a zebra girl, Zarina, and a wildebeest boy, Honoral. It takes place in easter Africa, Kenya and Tanzania, during a spell of rainy weather. Lovely story of friendship, and the meeting of challenges by youth – in this case the nomadic wanderings of a herd, and then, lions!
