Book I: Aiyasha’s Bottomless Briefcase 

A group of five to seven year old orphans from the Bundami valley in southern Africa call themselves the Bundu Bunch. 

They enjoy learning about their surroundings. They wish they could also attend classes to learn to read and do sums so they can stop being called “Dumb Oprhans”.

Can the Bundu Bunch find a way of overcoming unfair treatment by the headman of their community with the help of Aiyasha, the fifteen year old girl who is the head of their orphan household?


Book II: Aiyasha’s Appeal

Aiyasha makes two new friends from England as she faces an attempt on her life, becomes an illegal immigrant and seeks asylum. These friends also help her cope with the consequences of overseas aid cuts on the futures of her orphan charges: the Bundu Bunch.


Book III: Aiyasha’s Magical Legacy

As an exile, Aiyasha watches from afar as her compatriots suffer in a society divided between poverty of the many and privilege of the few. Aiyasha is determined to do something to turn around the fortunes of her beloved country. She has to rely on her special gift, her wits and the various talents of the members of the Bundu Bunch, which were fostered in their early years, when they came to live with Aiyasha in the orphan hut in the Bundami valley.




A very touching and inspiring storyline, enhanced with some beautifully evocative descriptions and imagery, which ends on a positive and uplifting note. It also provides fascinating information on aspects of African culture, geography and the environment. The Writers’ Advice Centre for Children’s Books


The Bundu Bunch Trilogy is an overall positive tale of family support, teamwork and working hard to overcome obstacles. Through the plotline of the different stories there’s a gentle introduction to discussion of poverty, international aid, immigration and refugees and more. With illustrations depicting key scenes at the end of some chapters this represents an easy way to introduce these topics for younger readers. LoveReading4Kids Ambassador
