About this title


Oli wished he were big. Big enough to go bird hunting with his brother Mbachu instead of having to take a nap. As big as Mbachu - or bigger. Much bigger. And suddenly...he was! A traditional African theme is given a contemporary setting and a satisfying resolution in this original take by a master storyteller.
