About this book

Saartjie 9: Saartjie se geveg (ePub) | Children's Fiction

Bettie Naudé

Human & Rousseau

Saartjie and her friends make full use of their ten-day school holidays. The Three Mosquitoes decide to pinch some delicious imported prickly pears from an aggressive old man who openly states that he will skin any thieves he catches alive – and our heroine gets more than she had bargained for.

After this adventure the tomboy sets a trap for her younger brother in their lounge but then the parson's wife comes to visit and things take a turn for the worse.

Saartjie is now seriously considering whether she should become a nun. Fortunately the circus comes to her suburb again and she soon forgets about all her sorrows because the circus lion escapes from his cage and miss Baumann meets him face to face!

A few days later a stray dog pops up in her and her younger brother's lives. They both desperately want him to be theirs but agree to let the dog decide who will be his keeper. In the meantime a grumpy new neighbour complains that the mutt needs to be taught some discipline – like Saartjie and Co!
