Product description

Review

"[An] inspiring story of curiosity and ingenuity." -- Publishers Weekly

"This book will appeal to adults eager to impart an uplifting Third World human-interest story, but it is also sure to resonate with children who will simply love the curiosity, resilience and resourcefulness of this doughty African youth." -- Wall Street Journal

"A powerful, gorgeously illustrated children's picture book." -- The Boston Globe

"This is a dynamic portrait of a young person whose connection to the land, concern for his community, and drive to solve problems offer an inspiring model." -- School Library Journal

"Zunon illustrates handsomely, with contrasting cut-paper-collage details and broad, sere landscapes painted in visibly textured oils." -- Kirkus

"This picture book in accessible free verse will draw kids who love to construct their own engineering gadgets." -- Booklist

Cooperative Children's Book Center's 2013 Best-of-the-year list. -- CCBC

Book Description
