  • The Girl Who Tweaked Two Lions' Tails on Nov. 08, 2011

    Pierre Van Rooyen is getting a solid reputation for his young heroines of unflinching character. He is coming to the public fore in his prose, which is lively as their adventures. Read a few lines and you are 'in' there. Go a little further and you're following an adventure of the natural world that takes you up several notches above the norm, while defying your expectation to find a 'way out' into a controlled reality. You see, Pierre is Not controlled. Not by any standard of the forbidden kingdoms of either man or manuscript. . .He's got a formidable mind with an imagination which matches his experiences. Like his little girl, Maudie, in "Saturdays are Gold," we know by page one that Angelina is going to defy the odds. Voraciously. We ask in vain with her parents, "Gogga, we love you, and I reckon you tweaked his tail, but please don't do it again." Right. We can count on it. Van Rooyen does it again.
