Obara and the Merchants is a beautiful adaptation of a traditional Yoruba story. Obara the hunter is finally able to eat after a long famine. But just as he is about to eat, a group of hungry merchants come up the path! Obara must decide what to do. And in the end, his decision is rewarded in a completely unexpected way.
Filled with extraordinary illustrations, this charming book offers an important lesson in good character. Obara and the Merchants shows the rewards of caring and sharing in a very special way. Young children and their parents will love the positive images of strong Black men, too often absent in children's books. This book is a must for every family!

Writing this book was a wonderful experience. I am delighted to share this beautiful story from the Yoruba religion with children everywhere-it affirmins good character without being preachy, and is a lot of fun to read! The pictures seem to come to life. I hope you enjoy reading Obara and the Merchants as much as I enjoyed writing it!About the Author:
