Product description

Review

This picture book throbs with sunshine. A stunning book. ― The Independent

...simple, repetitive narrative...accompanied by bold, vibrant spreads. Handa's Surprise, published seven years ago, has become a classroom classic, and I have no doubt that this new title will become a firm favourite. ― The Bookseller

A wonderfully-illustrated counting tale set in beautiful Africa. ― theschoolrun.com

Featured in Nursery World. ― Nursery World

About the Author

Eileen Browne’s titles include "Handa's Surprise", which was shortlisted for the 1995 Sheffield Children's Book Award, "Handa's Hen" and "Tick Tock". Eileen was born and brought up in Birmingham and lived in London for over twenty years before moving to Wiltshire where she now lives. She worked as a school teacher and a youth worker before becoming an author and illustrator. Her first book was published in 1977. Eileen believes "Certain groups of people are not well represented in books. For example, females only feature as main characters in around 30% of children's books. Because of this, I give them priority. "Where's That Bus?" was one of the first animal picture books with all female characters." Eileen has written books with Kit Wright and Floella Benjamin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Shona translation
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 30 July 2018
I bought this because I wanted Shona books to encourage my little one to speak and enjoy our native language. Being away from home he does not have the chance to practice the language much. This book is even a plus because it has both the Shona and English translations included on each individual page. He quite enjoys it and selects it at reading time daily with other books. Well translated. It was a ex library book but in good condition.
