I had a chuckle or two over the adventures of Eric in Its a Piece of Cake. A story with an educational message for children, and adults, told in an engaging way. The illustrations are excellent too.” Brian Joss, News editor: Cape Community Newspapers DLL by LU RTG

Additional Information

Linda (Lulu) lives in Kommetjie, a quiet fishing village in the deep south of Cape Town. Baboons frequently raid the local schools, homes and shops. As development has encroached on their natural habitat, so man and baboon have clashed. These wonderful creatures get a lot of bad press. It’s time we were a bit more understanding of their plight and realise how privileged we are to live alongside them. Eric was written to teach children to love and respect these fabulous furry friends.

About the Author:

Linda Fellowes is a storyteller based in Cape Town, with a heart for animals and wanted to write books for a younger audience so that they could understand what was happening to animals. She has tackled the penguins that were hurt in the oil spill, sharks, a crazy baboon named Eric, and her latest offering is Ithemba (meaning hope) the Rhino, to tell about the plight of the rhinoceros that are currently being hunted so viciously in our country. She loves living by the sea.“I love writing books for this age group [between three and seven tears old] because you get to educate both the parent and the child in one go,” Fellowes said.  “Children are sponges at this age and it is wonderful to be able to instil in them a love of conservation and wildlife.”
