Synopsis

"...profoundly moving..." -Publishers Weekly



Nelson Mandela's two great-grandchildren ask their grandmother, Mandela's youngest daughter, 15 questions about their grandad - the global icon of peace and forgiveness who spent 27 years in prison. They learn that he was a freedom fighter who put down his weapons for the sake of peace, and who then became the President of South Africa and a Nobel Peace Prize-winner, and realise that they can continue his legacy in the world today. Seen through a child's perspective, and authored jointly by Nelson Mandela's great-grandchildren and daughter, this amazing story is told as never before to celebrate what would have been Nelson's Mandela 100th birthday.

Ambassador Zindzi Mandela is a South African freedom fighter, diplomat, writer, speaker, cultural advocate and favourite Grandma. She is the last born child of Mrs Winnie Madikizela- Mandela and President Nelson Mandela, and was only 18 months old when her father went to prison. In 1985, when she was 25 years old, she read Nelson Mandela's famous refusal to accept the offer of conditional release from President P. W. Botha to a packed football stadium in Soweto, saying his words, 'I cannot and will not give any undertaking at a time when I and you, the people, are not free.' The Ambassador lives in Copenhagen where she serves as South Africa's ambassador to Denmark. Zazi Mandela (8) and Ziwelene Mandela (6) are the great-grandchildren of Mrs. Winnie Madikizela-Mandela and President Nelson Mandela. Zazi is a storyteller and an aspiring performer. Ziwelene is a storyteller and a maverick. Sean Qualls is an award winning, Brooklyn-based, children's book illustrator, artist and author. He has illustrated a number of highly acclaimed books for children, including Giant Steps to Change The World by Spike Lee and Tonya Lewis-Lee, Little Cloud and Lady Wind by Toni Morrison and her son Slade, and Before John Was a Jazz Giant, for which he received a Coretta Scott King Illustration Honor.

Customer Reviews

Having loved other books published by Frances Lincoln, when approached by the publisher to read Grandad Mandela I decided why not! I am very glad that I did because it was such an informative read that was easy to digest. I shamefully don’t actually know that much about Nelson Mandela and the apartheid, so this book was a really good introduction to him and what he did. Narrated in a way that’s engaging for children, Grandad Mandela is told from the perspective of his daughter and great-grandchildren as they ask their grandma questions about her father. Add to that it is beautifully illustrated throughout by Sean Qualls, and you’re on to a winner here. I’d definitely recommend Grandad Mandela for fans of the Little People Big Dreams series, and for those who would like to learn the basics about Nelson Mandela and what he did for South Africa!
