Alexander McCall Smith’s books are a treat. Enchanting tales from Africa bring you close to its people and their way of thinking. All six volumes of the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series with the fearless and crafty Mma Ramotswe makes you want to visit Botswana immediately. The characters put a smile on you face and you feel like sitting right beside them at lunchtime in the shade of a marula tree. He also published a volume with African tales called A Girl Who Married a Lion, which is ideal for children with its magical and sometimes grotesque stories.
