About the book - Waiting For The Waves
One of the world's top 10 youngest author, Michelle Nkamankeng, teams up with one of the best illustrators, Megan Venter, to produce an epic tale of a child's adventure at the beach. In her adventure at the beach, 7-year-old Michelle tells a fascinating tale that underscores the law of polarity of both love and fear - her love for the big waves coupled with her fear of this giant force of nature.
The inner struggle of love and fear drove Michelle to seek the support of her uncle & family. Ultimately the love of her uncle & family helped her conquer her fear of the big waves. This story highlights the contradictions of emotions: ultimately, by freeing oneself from fear, you give yourself permission to truly experience the beauty of nature.
