About this title


Sea Stories is a collection of stories from around the world – from “Hans and the hole” in Haarlem (Netherlands) to the harvesters of seabird nests Adhi (Pakistan) and Sinta (Guinea) in the East. But there are also many stories from other parts of the world, such as “The Flying Dutchman”, the Hole-in-the-Wall at esiKhaleni where the water people come to fetch you, “The ghosts of Jutten Island”, “Adamastor and the Cape of Storms” and the shepherd from Macassar who found Sheik Yusuf’s grave amongst the dunes.

Sea Stories also contains adaptations of The Little Mermaid, the tale of Princess Elisa and her eleven swan brothers, and the West Coast farmer Koos Malgas who stole his wife’s seal skin. And of course Hare tricks Salt Water Crocodile.

The charming illustrations by Marjorie van Heerden will carry a little reader away to a magical world full of oceanic wonder.

About the Author:

Wendy Maartens lives in Table View – only a stone’s throw from the “big blue dam”, Rietvlei’s lagoon and the West Coast where everything centres around the turn of the tide, the early morning’s catch and stories from long ago. She is an author of children’s books, a journalist, a translator and a dreamer. In 2006 Maartens received an honourable mention at the Noma Awards. Twice she has been a finalist at the ATKV’s Veertjie Awards.
