What's in a name? Plenty, according to young Christopher Mulamba. He is tired of his ordinary name - millions of people are called Christopher, three in his class alone! Christopher wants to be special, so he decides to change his name!
In fact, he changes his name several times. He's inspired first by a strong hero named Tiger - who has the stealth of a cat; then a wise one called The Real McCoy - who was an important inventor; and then a famous one - basketball-star Michael Jordan's team number. Christopher enjoys his unique names until he receives a check from his grandmother for his birthday and tries to deposit it. Only his real name will do, but now everyone is calling him something different!
The lovable Christopher returns in this lighthearted story with a simple message about being different. It's the perfect gift for a child who's ever wanted a new name.
