How I Survived Bullying includes illustrations of the characters Mofokeng writes about – all these are drawn by him. He is passionate about animation, even more than he is about writing. He also advises bullies to be nice and if they have a sad heart, to speak to a teacher or family member. The eight-year-old is currently working on four different books.
