I really enjoyed this book. I really, really, loved this story. It is always interesting to read stories that kids from another part of the world grew up hearing about. Every culture has their own brand of folklore that has been passed down through the generations. This is so different from any I have read. It is about 'A Superhero Tale, of Africa. The main character is Mwindo. As he lays in his mothers stomach waiting to be born he decides he does not want to come out as other babies do. So he climbs out of his mothers navel. He jumps down and ran around the room. In his hand was a conga flyswatter, with a handle of wood, and a swatter of buffalo tail. He sings: My father She-Mwindo does not want me. My father the chief wants to kill me. But what can he do against me? I could say so much more about this book to those who are reading this. But I do not want to spoil it for you. I can say by the end of this book you will find something that all children around the world want and need. This book will not disappoint you in any way. Thanks again, Mr.Shepard for another great read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
