Product Description

Zettelwitz the Table Mountain Wizard

A prankster and a fanatical collector of the letters from A-Z
An exercise in uncommon words
painted and written by
Rosemarie Breuer

Translated from German by Alison Kirkland and the author
With 50 birds of the Western Cape in South Africa by
Jill Adams

Zettelwitz the Wizard is a prankster and a fanatical collector of all sorts of things. This time he decides to transform creatures and objects into their capital letters to obtain the whole alphabet. Magic rules require that his prey somehow resemble the letter. He doesn't get away with it very easily, some of his victims put up a fight. They chase him and catch him, but he manages to escape more than once. Zettelwitz is in love with beautiful Ronja. When he experiences her wrath, he decides to change his ways and impress her with some useful magic. "It felt good to be liked and admired. In fact, it felt much better than to be feared and hated."
Children will enjoy the rhymes and play on words. You are doing them a favour by reading them texts, which include some unusual vocabulary.

I have read Zettelwitz with interest and enjoyment - the concept is original, and it is executed wittily and inventively. I should think that children would find it both entertaining and instructive.
Michiel Heyns

It's really great. The theme is original, the story exciting and the whole work can be appreciated on many different levels (a characteristic of great literature!)
Sinclair Wynchank

A new unique, imaginative and educational children's book. It has been written with a play on words, and provides a page for every letter of the alphabet.
Geraldine Mitton

I found the text charming and original - well done!
Marita van der Vyver

I read your book last night - so imaginative, fanciful, original, artistic AND instructive! You are very clever! CONGRATULATIONS!
Anny Wynchank

Zettelwitz is a thoroughly good idea - a language created before your very eyes and ears! The book takes the reader on a magical learning-tour through the alphabet... It is easy to see why Zettelwitz is so instantly accessible and warmly human. Here is all the joyous exuberance of creation as well as a prankish sense of humour.
Brian Green

5.0 out of 5 stars Zauberer Zettelwitz, Table Mountain Wizard 11 Jun 2012
By Mary Wister Rawlins - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a lovely Alphabet book that is much more than an Alphabet book. Each page, whether in English or in German, is full of alliteration, repeating the letter sound over and over by using many words that start with the letter featured on that page of the story. The story is exciting, full of action, and beautifully illustrated with Breuer's fun paintings and drawings of the letters, people and animals in the story. On every page there are also exquisite drawings, by Jill Adams, of the birds of South Africa. Being a birdwatcher, I greatly enjoy this book and am also using it to practice my German, since I bought the edition that has German on one side, and English on the opposite page. I also bought a copy of this edition for my 4 year-old granddaughter, who loves practicing her letters. Her dad took German in High School. Let's see what he remembers and what she learns!
