As I mentioned yesterday The Butterfly Heart contains many references to myths, legends and folk tales from Zambia. In my research I came across Kalimatundu a website by Vukani Nyirenda, a Zambian living in the US, and the author of Kalulu the Hare Outwitted, an illustrated book for children. Take a look! Kalimatundu means ‘The country of wild bougainvillea.
I found him on JacketFlap a networking site for children’s writers, illustrators and people interested in children’s books – librarians, teachers, publishers etc. Worth a visit.
