Tullula is a majestic bird born into royalty – the ndunas of the herd.
Being a nduna means having to guard the skies at night (although it’s not entirely clear what the ndunas are guarding against). Tullula longs for something different, so she sneaks off during the day (while the rest of the ndunas are sleeping) to explore what life is like living in sunlight.
The book includes a bonus CD featuring the Tullula song and a reading of the story by the author.
