Kolulu Taktaki – Series 1

the central character of Kolulu Taktaki was created by a 7 year-old boy who also wrote the first fantastic, highly imaginative stories. These stories possess an innocence and an absence of selfishness that one finds in children of that age. These qualities have formed the basis for the world of Kolulu Taktaki as seen in all subsequent books.

  • Format: 235 x 175, Landscape, 12 - 16pp.

The big surprise

Kolulu Taktaki is a little boy, 5 years old. He lives in a peaceful little house on top of a small hill, but he gets the surprise of his life one day when he goes for a walk and almost puts his foot on a little fat tail.

The wish

It is a beautiful day when a ray of sunshine lights up a little red stone in the forest path where Kolulu Taktaki is walking. Intrigued, he picks it up, takes it home and learns from his books that he has found a little wishing stone; one of those we would all like to have...

Best friends

Kolulu Taktaki goes to town to deliver fresh fruits and vegetables to his best friend Nambi. But suddenly he sees a new girl in the market place, the most beautiful girl he has ever seen. He promptly falls in love and forgets all about his friend…
