The dog Shola is determined to accompany Mr. Grogó to hunt wild boar. In her mind, boars are like sheep, only very black and very morund. Nothing more. But when they go hunting, she quickly starts to realise how wrong she was.
The Adventures of Shola (Pushkin Press, 2013) won the prestigious Marsh Prize 2014 for the best children book, translated into English by Margaret Jull Costa.
