A Song for Jamela | Picture Books

Niki Daly


The summer holidays are here, and Jamela is as bored as a girl can be! All she can think about is the Afro-Idols TV final – so when she lands a job at Divine Braids hair salon, she can’t believe her eyes at the arrival of the glamorous Afro-Idols celebrity Miss Bambi Chaka Chaka.

But while Jamela’s idol dozes and Aunt Beauty designs her starry hairdo, a buzzy fly appears on the scene and threatens to ruin everything . . . Can creative Jamela save the day?

This book is also available in IsiXhosa (Ingoma kaJamela, translated by Pamella Maseko) and IsiZulu (Ingoma kaJamela, translated by Dumisani Sibiya).
