About this title


Children will cheer for Mbi, an orphan boy who lives in a Nigerian village, when he teaches the villagers a lesson they'll never forget. Overworked and mistreated, Mbi gets only scraps when it's time to eat. Then one day a magical fruit tree grows just for him, and, using his wits, Mbi makes sure that he'll never be treated badly again. Nigerian-born author T. Obinkaram Echewa's accomplished story telling and E.B. Lewis's evocative paintings give this engaging tale timeless appeal.

Lewis has won several awards for his magnificent illustrations, including a Caldecott Honor for Coming On Home Soon by Jacqueline Woodson and a Coretta Scott King Honor for Talkin' About Bessie by Nikki Grimes.
