What was the initial inspiration for your app?
Being the mum of a little boy first inspired me to start writing books that were more real. My son really enjoyed books filled with facts, so I decided to base my stories and illustrations on reality. Things that children could more easily relate to. Then the plight of the rhino drove me to convert this story into an app. When I wrote the story of iThemba the rhino we had already brought out our first app, The Big Spill, about the Treasure Oil Spill and the incredible penguin rescue that followed. With the rhino being critically endangered it made sense to get the app out as fast as possible, after the book was published. This way we could take our story global and help save the rhino a mind at a time. It has such an important message that there wasn’t really a question about doing it.
