Professor Fossi jam packed with adventure!

Many years ago Louise Smit and her daughter, Corneli Smit, (then but a child) visited the Sudwala Caves. Outside the entrance to the caves, Dinosaur models, to scale, were displayed in all their glory While Louise was examining the three-horned Triceratops her imagination took flight. Slowly but surely an original story started to form. As it did, so she told it to her daughter and that is how the eccentric but loveable Professor Fossi came into being..... 

Professor Fossi en die Dinosourusse: The German Palaeontologist visiting the Dinosours (in Afrikaans).
