Story of the Month

  • The feast

    Sometimes Papa Smuts, who is a fisherman, struggles to catch any fish, but his family always has enough to eat. This is because they grow delicious, crispy vegetables with the help of their children, Frikkie and Sannie. One day, Papa Smuts swaps a fish for some juicy pink sausages. Mama Smuts sets about preparing her delicious Chakalaka for supper, and the family can hardly wait for the feast. Only when the meal is over does Mama Smuts make a surprising discovery.
