Our Story: Terrific Tales is a proudly South African online bookstore situated along KZN’s Sunny East Coast. The world is advancing at a rapid pace and digital technology has sneakily become the order of the day. Generation Z and Gen Alpha thrive on electronic devices and social media which have occupied the best hours of their day and alas they have become caught up in the web of spending endless hours online or engaged in technology which has become embedded in their lifestyle. Simple pleasures like reading a book have been eclipsed. Although there are numerous benefits of technology, it has hijacked invaluable bonding time with loved ones. The stories we read to our children will live with them forever and they will treasure and reflect back on the time spent reading to them. Our mission is to create a reading revival in the 21st century.
