iThemba is the Xhosa word for Hope.
With rhino poaching a serious threat to our rhino populations (over 430 rhino were poached in South Africa alone in 2011), it is up to our two-ton heroine, iThemba, and her game-ranger friend Joe, to save her skin - and her horn - when poachers come calling.
Kids will love how iThemba and Joe foiled the wicked horn hunters one dark night in an exciting tale which is loosely based on the real-life arrest of rhino poachers in the Kruger Park, and learning more about these magnificent creatures along the way.
Where there is life, there is hope. This book was written to teach children about our rhino. That rhino horn is made of Keratin, exactly the same as our hair and nails - it has no magical or medicinal properties.
We need to Save our Rhino. We hope we have done our job! The future of our planet is in our children's hands, let's teach them right!
