Although it took me some time to finish this - it was well worth the wait to get to the end! The tale is a multiple-generational account woven through decades of pain, love, sadness, and rejoicing. It is a real asset to have the story set in real life historical contexts. Bebe Moore Campbell proves, once again, her incredible value as a heartfelt, timeless writer.
Hilarious collection of classic tintin tales
My youngest absolutely LOVES the text, illustrations, and whimsical tale. He has the tee shirt now to match his own copy of the book and to show his affection for a fun story that emphasizes the importance of trying something new.
Interesting fictional account written from our young protagonist's mind - so hard to decipher at times because of his young age and perspective. Chronicles his painful journey as the son of a traveling European haphazardly adopted on one of his treks. Slave/Master relationship leaves one with great sympathy for young Black boy longing for his home while making the best of changing circumstances.
