Overview
-

In Animal Tales: Volume 4 poor Wolf continues his trials with Jackal. Again we see that poor Wolf is too dim-witted to realize that he is being tricked. He learns nothing from the mishaps that befall him; no, experience leaves Wolf none the wiser! The illustrations of up-and-coming artist Dale Blankenaar give new life to the antics of these animals.

About The Author
-

G.R. von Wielligh (1859–1932) grew up with the stories of the Bushman people. After he qualified as a surveyor, he made it his life-long quest to document these tales for posterity. Von Wielligh had a surveyor’s office in the hinterland of South Africa from where he would visit the regions known as Bushmanland and the Agter-Hantam. Without Von Wielligh, countless African fables would have been lost, since the radio and later television killed the indigenous traditions of storytelling.

DALE BLANKENAAR studied graphic design at Cape Peninsula University. He majored in illustration and advertising and was mentored by Piet Grobler. After graduation he worked as a freelance designer for a year and during that time illustrated his first book. He now works as a promotions designer at Condé Nast and as a freelance illustrator of children’s books.
