Saartjie 2: Saartjie se vakansie (ePub) | Children's Fiction
Human & Rousseau
It has been raining a lot during the December holidays and our heroine and her mates get involved in a mud fight. Unfortunately they hit the wrong target: Saartjie’s older brother and his girlfriend. The next day The Three Mosquitoes turn little Midge into a circus clown and they do such a good job that her mother fears she will never look normal again. But enough of mischief.
A hurricane destroys an underprivileged Johannesburg suburb and Saartjie discovers a twin brother and sister whose parents are both in hospital. She feels sorry for them and hides them in her playroom at home. To her dismay, Saartjie reads in the paper that the police have launched a major search for the children since their parents believe that they have been kidnapped. When Saartjie’s younger brother discovers them he thinks they are burglars but Saartjie explains who they are and her father offers to help the twins’ parents.
Before the end of the holidays Saartjie takes part in a radio quiz and she makes it to the final round, although she is forced to ask her small brother’s help to answer the final trick question.
