Africa, Amazing Africa: Country by Country

By Atinuke

Illustrated by Mouni Feddag

A first introduction to the Africa continent for young children, with words by bestselling author of the Anna Hibiscus series Atinuke and lively illustrations from Mouni Feddag.

Africa, Amazing Africa is Atinuke's first introduction to the African continent – an exciting starting point for young children. With double-pages to introduce the different regions of Africa (South, East, West, Central and North), each country in Africa is then represented on one page with a colourful half-page illustration from artist Mouni Feddag, a paragraph of descriptive text and then one to three facts, geared towards readers aged 4+; imagined as a diving-off point, to give a sense of the variety of the continent and inspire young readers to find out more about the different countries of Africa. CATEGORY AND OVERALL WINNER OF THE SLA AWARDS "A gorgeous walkthrough of all Africa's countries, celebrating the history, languages and culture of the continent."
