Nine-year-old Leungo has a very interesting outlook on life. He views his parents as good-for-nothing savages who care only for themselves; who drink themselves silly with friends every day, leaving any concern for his education by the wayside. However, when Leungo’s father, goaded by a piece of advice from a particularly inebriated friend, takes him to another South African township to spend time with his grandparents—who haven’t seen the boy since he was an infant—Leungo experiences a profound culture shock. Filled with humor, this novel demonstrates that sometimes what you have is better than what you dream about.
