Beverley Naidoo wins at Children’s Africana Book Award

Who Is King by Beverley Naidoo, illustrated by Piet Grobler, has been listed as a Best Book for older readers.

Find out what happens to Lion when he challenges Elephant and discovers who is the real king of the savannah; laugh along with Tortoise as he bewitches the animals in Tiger’s work-party with his irresistible music; find out why Hippo has no hair, how Elephant got his trunk, and why Cockerel crows. Then read about the woman who had a mouse-child! The stories are drawn from the rich folklore of Ethiopia, Ghana, Nigeria, Tanzania, Malawi, Lesotho, Zimbabwe and South Africa.

The book was published by Frances Lincoln in 2015 and can be bought here.
