This book for beginning readers focuses on a South African woman named MaMkhize, who has no money to pay the rent or buy food because no matter how much she cries and pleads, her husband spends all the money on drinking at the "shebeen." She asks the "sangoma" for help. Together, they plan a clever trick to help stop her husband's drinking. The trick involves drugging his beer to make him sick, then explaining to him that the drinking is making him sick. A facilitator's guide presents information for teaching people who are learning to read for the first time or for people who are learning to read in a second language.
