All Faizel ever wanted was to “shine” like the stars he so dearly adores.
The day before his fifth birthday is an ordinary day: he and his sister
play with her dolls and he helps his mother with the laundry. But his
dad always has something to say about Faizel being “like that”. What
exactly does his dad mean when he uses the words, “like that”?
What is in the wrapped gift that they surprise him with on the morning
?of his birthday, and what lies ahead for Faizel’s future? Will he get to live
his dream and shine like a star?
A gentle story about a little AfriKaaps boy who is different that teaches
children about acceptance and tolerance, and to be loving.
