Life should be fun, and Having Fun Together sets a delightful example of joyous entertainment for young readers. A collection of 90 enchanting children's stories, these tales take place in Johannesburg and center around six boys and girls, who are between the ages of six and nine. Some of the children in the group are black, and others are white. They are typical kids, although very intelligent and imaginative, and like many youngsters, they spend most of their time looking for fun -- and that often leads to impulsive and forgetful behavior. When the author combines the children's search for good times with their imaginative natures, a variety of embarrassing and entertaining situations result. But fun loving does not necessarily mean irresponsible. When the situation calls for it, these children can be mature, responsible, and eager to help their friends.
