Gayton McKenzie has been deterring children from crime and drugs since his release from prison in 2002. He has spoken to millions of school children in thousands of schools, in South Africa and abroad, and has made an impact on these children in ways which most other speakers cannot.
The reason is that everything he tells them is true, and from the heart. His life, as a top criminal and convict, was changed forever in prison and his story has been able to change the hearts and minds of others, old and young. For this reason, this book has been written to tell Gayton’s story in simple, colourful language, with equally colourful artwork, and is something we can all take to heart. Any parent who knows to hope for the best, but acknowledges the worst, will share this story with their child.
