About the Author
Beverley Naidoo is a South African author exiled from her home country in 1965, as a student campaigning against apartheid. Her first children's novel, Journey To Jo'burg, was banned in South Africa when it was published in 1985 and only became available there after Nelson Mandela's release from jail in 1991. Journey To Jo'burg was published in many other countries around the world and was widely praised for its eloquent, moving, and accessible story. Her later novel, The Other Side of Truth, won the Carnegie Medal in 2000. She has written many other award-winning books for children. Naidoo lives in the UK.
