Meerkat Maantuig (Meerkat Moonship)
Gideonette de La Reys is a timid and visionary girl. Her dad Gideon battles daily to allay her fears about a family curse: that they die at an early age but Gideonette is convinced an early death will be her fate. When something happens to reinforce her beliefs in the curse, the frightened 13-year-old recoils from the world. Her mother sends her to stay with her grandparents who are… “different.” While there, she meets Bhubesi, a little boy who cheerfully spends his days training to be an astronaut. Meerkat Moonship takes us on an enchanting magical journey of hope.
When a boy battling a brain tumor is ready to give up, his little sister helps him discover a message of hope.
