    1. I absolutely loved reading this book. It is a collection of eight stories from eight African countries such as Swaziland, Senegal and Ghana. I like the fact that prior to each story there is a short introduction to the country. The stories are full of adventure, emotion and they really are uplifting and enticing for the children to listen to and also for them to read themselves.I have to comment on the illustrations as they are absolutely beautiful and compliment the book so well.

    2. This is one of the most beautiful books I have ever seen, partly due to the really luscious textile illustrations that add so many layers of colour and culture to the traditional stories.The book has a collection of tales from Africa.
