"Two children and a dog offer a tentative hope for a strife-ridden, modern South Africa . . . Vusi is a meticulously drawn character, whose singleminded adoration of his dog is universal, but whose beliefs and concerns are uniquely Zulu . . . Offers a glorious description of, as well as a valuable insight into, a part of the world that probably has never hit the radar screen of most young readers. A historical note precedes the story, contexualizing the tensions presented within." - Kirkus Reviews
