About the Author:

Niki Daly has won many awards for his exuberant work. His groundbreaking Not So fast Songololo (1986), winner of a U.S Parent's Choice Award, paved the way for post-apartheid South African children's books. Since then, he has been published across the globe and has visited and presented talks in several countries. Among his many Frances Lincoln books, Once Upon a Time was an Honor Winner in the US Children's Africana Book Awards of 2004. Jamela's Dress - first in the Jamela series - was another milestone book, chosen by the ALA as a Notable Children's Book and by Booklist as one of the Top 10 African American Picture Books of 2000, and winning both the Children's Literature Choice Award and the Parent's Choice Silver Award. Niki lives with his wife, the illustrator Jude Daly, in Mowbray, a bustling Cape Town suburb.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3 Daly's picture book is of high quality both visually and textually. While the setting is Daly's native South Africa, the simple story line of the mutual love between a child and his grandmother is universal in appeal. Malusi (Songololo to his grandmother), the young boy, is enlisted by his elderly grandmother Gogo to assist her on a shopping trip to the city. His hand-me-down sneakers are old and full of holes, and Malusi's desire for a new pair is evident by his dreamy-eyed window-shopping. Malusi doesn't ask for a pair, but Gogo, after observing his behavior and the condition of his sneakers, makes this day very special by steering him into a shop and buying him a bright red pair. A simple gift but something quite special for a little boy who doesn't have much. Daly's watercolor and marker illustrations are vibrant, bright and sure to delight young children. The contrast between the elderly weather-worn face of Gogo and Malusi's youthful, eager, expressiveness is something that will jump out at readers. Equally suitable for storytelling or independent reading, Not So Fast Songololo will be a welcome addition to any collection.Tom S. Hurlburt, Anoka County Library, Blaine, Minn.
