Product description

“Ifwafwa. Yes, that is what they call me. The Puff Adder. Slow and heavy, but fast to strike.”

Bul-Boo and Madillo are worried about their friend Winifred, who has lost her gentle smile and no longer puts up her hand in class. Then the twins discover her secret: she is to be married off to her uncle’s friend, who drinks heavily and is old enough to be her grandfather. While Winifred has become resigned to her fate, her friends are determined to stop to the marriage. But what can they do? The only person who can help is old Ifwafwa, the snake man, who is wise and gifted, but does not like to hurry. Will he be too late to save their friend? A lyrical story from the butterfly heart of Africa.
