"Images of security, dependability, and plenty offer a fresh picture of African life."

This is a beautiful story, simply yet evocatively illustrated. The setting is exotic, yet the storyline is one that any young kid can relate to. I give it four stars only because the author's literary word choice, while vibrant, is a little distancing to young ears.
