Handa's Surprise, Paperback / softback Book

Handa's Surprise Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Eileen Browne

Part of the Handa series

Paperback / softback

Description

In this big book edition of a picture book classic, a delightful surprise colourfully unfolds when a little girl called Handa puts seven delicious fruits in a basket to take to her friend. A beautiful big book edition of a bestselling modern classic - perfect for sharing in the classroom - this is the story of Handa, who's part of the Luo tribe in south-west Kenya.

Handa decides to take seven pieces of delicious fruit to her friend, Akeyo, who lives in the neighbouring village.

But as Akeyo wonders, I wonder what fruit Akeyo will like best?, a series of sneaky animals steal something from Handa's basket, which she's carrying on her head...

When Handa reaches Akeyo, will she have anything left to offer her friend?

Richly-illustrated, brimming with luscious fruit and cheeky wild animals, this mouth-watering story is for the youngest of readers.

In the best pantomime spirit, children will long to tell Handa what's happening right behind her!
