African Adventures of Flame, Family, Furry and Feathered Friends

Maretha Botha

Heroes aren't born heroes. They're called to duty unexpectedly. A desert dog with humble beginnings risks his life to keep an important promise.

 

Life takes strange turns for a puppy born in the desert. After his first owners suffer a tragic loss, a free-range cattle farmer adopts him. When the pup arrives at the farm, far from his birth place, not everyone welcomes him. A member of his new family doubts whether he would ever be a good working dog and their old bull-terrier makes life unpleasant for him. But as time goes by, he grows into a strong, agile dog, finding many loyal, furry-and-feathered friends. They help him to keep a promise; protecting vulnerable bush creatures.
An elusive bird with unusual, pink eyelids tells their stories about fires, villainous poachers, hilarious misunderstandings, happy reunions and many kind humans, who support them after a while. Their stories reveal why not all humans speak Faunalang and why it is always better to treat goats with respect. Despite ups and downs, this desert dog becomes a loyal protector of Fauna Park - their own secret sanctuary. Here he becomes loved by friends and feared by foes - in a land where the sun always lingers longer before it disappears behind the horizon.

Hi Maretha,
thank you very much for bringing this story to my attention. After only a few chapters, I can only agree with the other comments; it's absolutely marevlous and supersweet. Since I have a cat, I especially liked Dolly Cat and her impatience in chapter two. I can vividly imagine how she rolls onto her back, wriggling in the sand lol This is really cute. The daughter of my cousin, who is now fifteen, would have loved to read a story like yours until two or three years ago; I know she wouldn't have put it down before reading it all.

Overall, this is simply a very imaginative, entertaining and convincing read. It is impeccably edited, the writing flows nicely, fitting smoothly into the genre, and the pace is just about right (at least for me but I guess your target audience will think the same). The only tiny bit I noticed, and this is really nitpicky stuff, is in chapter two where you put 'smiled' in quotes. I wondered why. Well, of course dogs can't really smile the way we do but I would say that their simling, as well as their language, is real in this case. I hope you know what I mean.
I really liked 'Faunalang' and 'Humanlang' by the way. The pronunciation index was very helpful, too.

Congratulations on this one. I'll definitely back and high-star this for the last part of your journey.
All the best for you,
Nicola

Maretha,

Fantastic! Thoroughly enjoyed your story! The depictions of Africa and the uniqueness of the animal characters were each beautifully crafted. When I read and I can visual the places and characters that is when I know a book is good. Thank you for the invite to read and review. I am very proud to say you have found a backer in me - hoping you will continue your stories with Flame and friends - we need more great kids stories, especially for those ages 7-13. Let me know when you publish, I want to buy a copy for my god-daughter. She is 8 and an avid reader who loves animals and she would really enjoy this book!

Best,
Jen

I lived and worked in the Kalahari* where my now (8 yr old) was born and grew up. So please think of me as super-prissy critic!

I am not a lover of animal-led literature. Or an owner and real lover of animals...But when I read Maretha's book aloud to my 8 yr old who IS - I saw the eyes light up at the intricacy in the story and the beautiful characterisation of each animal.

The added bonus was that the backdrop was the Kalahari. AFRICA - Our roots. This made it mean even more to us as we read it together - we have not yet found ANY child-centred work that truly brings life in the kalahari alive to us in such a pretty way - in such a rollocking story too!

But our other child does not remember Africa - and yet is now convinced that this was a part of their wee life!

This is a FAB book and truly - and perfectly - aimed at this age group and never mind the storyline and the characters which I think will lead many children and parents to a love of all things African - the patter of the lyricism will foster a child's love of language and learning.

A beautiful book to be read by children but esp alongside their grown ups!

I read this in one sitting. It was so entertaining that I will not hesitate to recommend this to my tweener granddaughters to read, as both love good animal stories. I do too :)

I nearly wept when Flame told his story about Lera and his little sister. You have a knack for drawing in the reader very quickly and making them feel as though these little characters have always been their friends.

I also like that you have provided pronunciation guides for the foreign words.

In chapter 4, I would italicize veldskoene and then put the meaning between commas. As a reader, I don't want to have to interrupt the flow to look at footnotes. But, that's just me. :)

That's really it. Great job!!! 6/6 from me :) Best of luck.

Fauna Park sounds like the best name to me too! I read the first 5 chapters so far, and what an adorable story you have here! I love your names for each of the animals - Katse Kitten, Spike-BullT, and Rocksy Rabbit. So cute! You've done a wonderful job creating this animal world. I am an animal-lover and can fully appreciate each of your animal characters.

I think it is well-written, entertaining, and an overall fantastic read for tweeners!

I am always searching for great stories for my three godsons (3, 4 and 4). They're now a little young for your book, but I will keep it on my list of books to read them/have them read. They have many animals - cats, dogs, and chickens and would absolutely love Flame!

From my standpoint, I enjoyed reading about Africa! I have never actually been, but it is definitely on my list of places to see. You made me itch to see it more and really brought this setting to life for me through each chapter. I like the reality of your human stories as well. The way you describe the tragedy of Lera, Flame's first mistress, is perfect for your genre. I like that your story does not espouse that life is all rainbows. The realism of the world we live in is preserved, but not dwelled upon. You handled this situation with great tact.

Seeing the world through the eyes of animals is a great way to instill the importance of compassion in young minds. I believe it breeds selflessness and produces caring adults. Your book has a great cause behind it, and I sincerely wish you find success! Very glad I got to take a look!

All the best,
Caitlin

CHIRG review

Maretha,

Congratulations on making the editors desk with this manuscript! You have some charming and entertaining characters, and I really liked the middle posted chapters. I struggled through the early chapters. It took me awhile to get into your rhythm. I reread an early chapter, and then found it a smoother read after getting accustomed to your style. I think the character names and most of the stories are better suited to a younger audience than 10-12.

Best wishes,
Jeff

It's different, targeting a foreign market. After seven chapters I couldn't get into the flow. I guess you can't please everyone.

Oh thank you for the dictionary! I was wondering how to pronounce some of those words.

I loved how you captured each individual animal's persona. A children's book that is sweet, with a message, and captures an adult's interest as much as a 'tween's". Your descriptive prose is spot on and the dialog is engaging, moving the plot along nicely. Great job.

Hi Maretha,
What a great start of a story. I'm an animal lover and do talk to my cat and dog as if they can hear and understand what I am saying. Maybe they actually do.

Overall - Very quick and easy to read. I stumbled on the foreign language only b/c my brain isn't reading them as fast as normal/common words but they still flow smoothly. The index you have at the end of the helps.

Ch1 - Great descriptions that goes very well with the animals.
Ch 2- Some of the dialogue got long for me without any action from the speakers.

Hi Maretha, I really like this book! The setting and characterization were superb (as an animal lover, I couldn't resist reading the first few chapters in earnest!) I have backed the book, and rated it 5 stars, because it really deserves it! The flow of language is also excellent, as is the way you manage to integrate the characters into the setting and vice versa, creating a bond between both elements of the story, is excellent! :D

I'm not one for children's stories since I don't write them and as a child I was reading Stephen King in grade school and not the requiem Dick and Jane.

Yours however may have changed my mind. It's sweet, adventurous and told from the point of view of a bird. Very nicely written. Clever.

I think any child of the target age group will probably love these animals and their tales - and what a great way to get kids reading. You create the atmosphere so well - and are making me long for the Kalahari again. It's been too many years since I was last there.

Faunalang / Funigalore... nice twist. I gather the strange spelling of Kalahari is also deliberate, but to be honest I don't think this twist works, would be better as the original and real name - or even Kgalagadi. I see it's sort of a mix of the two?
But that's a small issue, easily dealt with in word if you do switch it up. The warmth of your characters is lovely, they are ery appealing, and this has tons of potential for a publisher to work with.

"African Adventures of Flame" is a very cute story collection. Flame and his park friends try to make peace in a land full of danger and powerful animals. I love that some humans can speak faunalang - Flame's first loving mistress and her two little ones, I love the animals' names! Rocksy, Martin, Flame, Katse Kitten . . . and Flame's care of the tiny and helpless bush creatures, as he takes upon himself to do.

Hi Maretha

I've only read the first three chapters but I must say I'm smitten by your story!

Whilst your narrative voice may not be strong in it's timbre it fits what you are trying to do in the way you want to tell the stories through the animals. I also like the fact that you do not talk down to the readers in a condescending way, I believe you have the knack for the age group you are aiming for.

I can't see any reason why the publishers would turn down a gem like this one.

Maretha,
I decided to focus on Ch. 20 which is a turning point of your story. We open up to the scene of a bedridden Flame being watched over by those who through much trial and tribulation have proven to be his true friends. Such a reflection of life, giving immense importance to having friends stand by you in times of need. A little nit - you might want to add an "a" before "gust of wind" in the first paragraph. What wondrous sentiments are expressed by your book, Hope surviving the train incident, to strive on in search of a better life with Vera, but never forgetting Flame. Six starred.

KristaLaRae wrote 232 days ago

I've read four chapters of your book and I am on chapter five.

When I was a kid, I absolutely loved animal books like these. There is something about animals (especially in the way you have presented them) that speaks to young hearts.

Your book's plot is clear and simple for children, yet it has a wide variety of lovable characters and a magical setting. There is just something about the way you describe the African desert and the farm they live on that is appealing and unique. It isn't just your average farm; It's in Africa! The setting provides an adventurous edge to your story. I felt invited into the story because of the language, geography, and culture of Africa shared with me by the likeable narrator. I really felt like I was a part of and understood the animals' community.

I was a little confused by the italicized sentences at first. They seem to be Hope's internal narrative although the whole story is from her(?) perspective so I'm not sure what characterizes the italicized sections. I would like to see a little more of a reaction from Hope during Flame's story so we don't forget who is narrating the story. Since I have only read to chapter 5 I may not have the best opinion. Hope may become more of a main focus as the story progresses. It was important to have Flame tell his story first so we understood and loved him as a character, but now I would like to hear more from Hope instead of long stories from others' point of views.

I will continue reading!!! I really love your story and I am attached to these cute critters.

This is a fantastic book for children to enjoy and an easy read for adults! Thank you for such appropriate literature for all ages! I noticed you are in the running for the Editor's Desk. Good luck!

African Adventures of Flame, Family, Furry and Feathered Friends.
By Maretha Botha

Fantastic children's book that in my opinion will adorn many book shop shelves in time.
Maretha Botha, is a very competent author who knows how to write inspirational stories for the younger child.
The book is full of vivid descriptive scenes...a youngster needs these to be kept interested in any book.
This has it all and is very well written. I've read the book a couple of times and it has been improved each time i've looked it over. It's been on my shelf for a long time...It will stay there! Such is the content of this wonderful book...Check it out,.. You'll be surprised!

CHIRG review: "African Adventures of Flame, Family, Furry and Feathered Friends"

Flame's Adventures took me back to watching "Kimba the White Lion" when I was young, and Flame's story have potential for just as many adventures on the African plains and jungles. I like the adventure with the Martial Eagle - I could see Mars becoming either a recurring opponent or friend. The adventure with Flame and his friends seeking to acquire a reservoir 'reserve war', negotiating perhaps with humans for a water source for them, is fun and interesting, I'd like to see how it continues to play out. There's room for a whole series of fun stories with this . . .

Hi Maretha,

When I read the short and long pitch I was immediately enticed by the concept/premise for this delightful story. I think you are correct in saying that it targets the tweeners, teenagers, but is also a great story telling book to be read to a younger audience.I can imagine reading this to the children in our family.
The use of the dialogue to include descriptive, and informative imagery as well as back story is cleverly achieved. The writing is clear and succinct, and flows beautifully.
The reference to, the smell of the leader who attacked him, I found very poignant as one of our dogs was attacked once by an aboriginal male in Alice Springs and the smell haunted him thereafter.
The characters are nicely knitted together and their names are ideal for the setting.
I have read up to chapter 6, however my favourite chapter so far has been 'The promise' as they band together to form an alliance.
I wish you every success as you now so near the ED, a well deserved placing :)
I have already given this high stars whilst reading.
Best wishes,

Amanda Robertson wrote 236 days ago

There is something very warm, comforting and genuine in your pacing of this story. I think it must be your skill in the telling of the story between the animal characters. You're immensely brave to take on such a difficult genre (talking animals or anthropomorphism) because I think it could become unbelievable very quickly. However, your woofs and purrs are fine, and as a reader I am quickly able to pull them into real characters. For me, it was the sympathetic way you handled human horridness, told starkly, but not cruelly through the eyes of the animals, that pulled me in hook line and sinker. It gives it a detachment that allows a better purchase on events. I would really like to read more of this. Top stars, and as the current E.D clears at the end of the month, I'll back it and hope that you do reach rank and that great things follow for you.

This story has the makings of a classic children's tale, with a magical setting and well-drawn characters.
The writer's imagination is everywhere on display, and I was particularly interested by the small details such as the animals' imaginary language 'faunalang.'
The plot device of having the characters narrate the tale to each other captures the feeling of storytelling in its traditional and natural setting, and the quality of the stories themselves live up to their telling.
