hi my names yasra and i would just like to say that this book is absolutely brilliant. during this school term we have had ghanian students come to our school to see what education is like here (in england). lets get to the point on this evning named the globe (a multiculterul event) we read through this book and we performed a play on this it turned out to be brilliant.
we had perfect story and perfect timeing. it took us 9 whole school days to perform this. it was a great challenge but we had great fun listen to it. my favourite carector is the anzu bird its sooo cool. an amazing book!
