A delightful book for easy reading, a must for the multiracial school or any other for that matter. With references to yam and mango the author takes us through a couple of days in the life of Kofi, a West African boy who buys a baby eagle from a friend and wants to sell it for profit. To his horror his best buyer only wants the baby eagle's heat and Kofi just manages to undo the deal and protect his new pet; as it seems to become! Finally a kindly old man shows him how to put right the original bad deed and replace the bird with its mother. The book reads well and has been eagerly devoured. It's not deep or profound but nicely completes one episode in Kofi's life. A pity there aren't more stories about this likeable character.
