Izak de Vries chats to Bridget Krone about The Cedarville Shop and the wheelbarrow swap, published by Catalyst Press.
Can a dream be born in Cedarville, a place of grinding poverty?
When Boipelo Seku decides to improve his life, reality hits him in the face. Hard. Very hard.
The young boy, a keen reader, wanted to emulate a Canadian man who used the internet to improve his life. There is only one problem: Boi has no internet.
The Cedarville Shop and the wheelbarrow swap is a story of harsh realities and of dreams that can come true when one dares to work hard.
Sometimes one needs to ask, and someone will hear your voice.
In this video a young boy challenges Roger Federer to a game of tennis. He may have forgotten that moment, but a large pasta company did not.
Boi Seku from Cedarville did not have a major pasta company behind him, but Cedarville does have some magic, even if one has to work extremely hard to make magic happen!
