Nicole is a Great White Shark who caused quite a stir. After being tagged in South African waters, she was tracked swimming to Western Australia to everyone’s astonishment. The trip of more than 11 000 kilometres took only 99 days. Like many sharks, Nicole is partial to fish,which is how she lands up in a bit of a pickle with some trek fishermen….

Commissioned by the Save Our Seas Foundation to write Nicoles story to educate children about the Great White Shark, a truly magnificent creature, and to dispel the myth that we are part of their diet, Linda Fellowes found it privilege to be part of this great initiative

The future of our planet is in our childrens hands, letteach them the right way

“If you enjoyed ‘Peter, Pamela and Percy in the Big Spill and had a good giggle over ‘Eric in It’s a piece of Cake you will enjoy ‘Nicole in The Surf is my Turf from the winning partnership of Lulu and Tee. Here is another charming, rhyming tale about a misunderstood creature, Nicole, a Great White” Brian Joss, Cape Community 

“Lulu and Tee have teamed up again, this time to bring young readers the adventures of cross-Indian Ocean swimmer Nicole, a great white shark who narrowly escapes being caught by fishermen. The photographs, illustrations and text work together swimmingly!” Lisa McNamara, Child Magazine

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.”
