100 Books

100 Representative South African Books for Children and Young People

South Africa has produced a wealth of wonderful books for children and many have won international acclaim. The purpose of these lists is to share one hundred of the best books from each year. Selected books are either by South African authors and illustrators, or by non-South Africans living and working in South Africa.
