Melina Lewis
R167 Discovery Miles 1 670 In stock

Mystery meets history in Libertalia: Lost Fortunes, Melina Lewis’ new YA fiction novel aimed at 11-15 year olds. Lobengula - the last ruling King of the Matabele - was fabled to have hidden an immense treasure of diamonds, gold and ivory, which was never found by the invading colonialists. It is against the historical backdrop of this ancient African legend that the mystery unfolds. Set in a private boarding school in the Eastern Cape in South Africa, the story is a melting pot of friendship, mystery and treasure, peppered with suspense, intrigue and African legend.

Best friends since they met at school, Karabo and Isla are grade 10 learners at Dayeton College, who are about to discover that the people they think they know, aren’t really what they seem.

Meet the cast: Karabo, focused on her academics and her hockey captain dreams is called upon by her ancestors to become a sangoma (which was not part of the plan!). But it is her intrigue with the arrival of mysterious, William, a new grade 12, which sees her unwittingly drawn into a plot. Isla Hepworth smart and sporty, with exacting standards is utterly taken with Mzi Khumalo Dayeton’s dream head boy who also happens to be a direct descendent of the great Matabele tribe of Zimbabwe. What appears to be a normal high school year reveals a cunning plan devised by William’s father, Edward English, whose ultimate goal is to settle this ancient debt, as final payment for the Matabele and British betrayal.

His plan: to recreate the free town of Libertalia and restore it to its former glory. From the inside of a smoke-filled sangoma hut, Karabo finds herself drawn into a plot that sees William and Mzi’s families pitted against each other. As she grapples with her new gift, Karabo discovers she is the only one who can connect to the spirit world, to uncover the key to the missing treasure. As Karabo and Isla navigate their way through school terms, holidays, exams and the end-of-year matric dance, ancient mysteries emerge and their friendship becomes more important than ever.

Libertalia will excite teens about history and legends long forgotten - ones not taught in the classroom. So, parents, brush up on your history! You’re going to be asked many questions about whether ‘this’ or ‘that’ is true or not. It’s time to turn off the screens and introduce your teens to intrigue and adventure... We believe they’ll thank you for it!

Die avonture van Kuifie (Frans: Les Aventures de Tintin et Milou) is een van die gewildste strokiesverhale wat in die twintigste eeu verskyn en is vandag steeds populêr. Die boeke word in ongeveer 60 tale vertaal. Die hoofkarakter van die verhale is die jong Belgiese verslaggewer Kuifie. Saam met sy hond, Spokie, beleef hy verskeie avonture.

Die eerste verhaal van Kuifie verskyn op 10 Januarie 1929 as ’n bylae tot die Franstalige Brusselse koerant Le Vingtième Siècle. Hergé skryf en teken in die tydperk tussen 1929 en 1976 23 strokiesverhale (die 24ste verhaal bly onvoltooi).

In Die 7 kristalballe keer die Sanders-Hardmuth-ekspedisie na Europa terug ná ’n lang reis deur Peru en Bolivia. Hulle bring die mummie van Raskar Kapak saam met hulle terug. Professor Sonneblom voorspel dat daar niks goeds van hierdie grafskending gaan kom nie. Een na die ander verval die sewe wetenskaplikes wat aan die ekspedisie deelgeneem het in ’n vreemde koma, en telkens word kristalskerwe op die toneel gevind.

Brits en Britz se hulp word ingeroep om die saak te ondersoek. Intussen word professor Sonneblom ontvoer en Kuifie, Spokie en kaptein Sardijn vertrek na Suid-Amerika om hom te probeer opspoor.
