Mella and the N'anga by Gail Nyoka


This book was given to me by a friend, and I was immediately eager to get started on it. The art on the cover drew me in and I was soon glad that I had begun reading. Mella and the N'anga is a beautiful African folktale, retold and written in the perfect way for children to understand and enjoy. I love mythology and this book is no exception.
