 Elizabeth Laird / Illus. Toby Newsome


Inspired by an Ethiopian folk tale, Gloria's Porridge shows young children how one act can cause a chain reaction and affect other people's lives. When Cat wanted some of Gloria's porridge, he ignored her saying no and ate it all. Gloria then scares Cat who tickles the donkey, who interrupts the bees who then frighten the hen.

It is up to the fox then to show the others the importance of not letting this setback slow them down. This re-imagined folk tale tackles difficult ideas like having to take responsibility and overcoming setbacks in a fun and simple manner, ideal for young readers. Toby Newsome's colourful illustrations are inspired by his South African surroundings.

Gloria's Porridge is a fun story from Africa.
