The Herd Boy
by Niki Daly
Malusi is a herd boy, which means that he must look after his grandfather's sheep and goat and keep them from being harmed on the grazing slopes. It is a big job for a small boy, but it is one that Malusi does well. This book is about a boy who dares to dream of a big future. It is a story of empowerment, self-belief and leadership and is inspired by the life of former president Nelson Mandela.
