The Cool Nguni is a richly illustrated story about a young Nguni calf who questions his identity in relation to other cattle breeds from across the sea. His patient and loving mother listens to his praise-singing and then responds by telling him a tale of the origins and importance of his own breed, the indigenous Nguni. She also explains the names of his relatives and shows him the multi-coloured and patterned hides which make Nguni cattle unique.

The 15 hand-painted original illustrations and sensitive text draw upon Africa’s love and respect for Nguni cattle, ex­plaining the importance and myths surrounding cattle to a new generation.
