Prodigy writer Reinkantse Manaka from Bloemfontein has taken her writing to another level by publishing an updated version of her self-written book, High Ten For Reikantse.

The latest version was unveiled on Tuesday, 7 February, at the launch held at the National Museum in Bloemfontein.

Another young author, Stacey Fru (9), also introduced her second book, Bob and the Snake.

Reikantse (12) published the first edition of her book High Ten For Reikantse in 2015.

She started working on it in 2014, and it includes six short stories and fun activities.

The book makes an interes-ting read for learners.

The book was published locally by Omo Ole Books.

Reikantse is a Gr. 6 learner at the Eunice Primary School in Bloemfontein.

She published the first edition of her intriguing book to coincide with her tenth birthday.

The book is a product of the young writer’s passion for reading and writing, as well as public speaking.

Reikantse was inspired to write after reading a series of books bought for her by her parents, Matumelo and Teboho Manaka.

Her love for reading helps her to fly through the pages, reading them at a very fast pace.

Reikantse also participates in drama, sings in the choir and plays hockey.

Her public speaking has seen her interact with many diffe-rent people.
