About this title

Synopsis:

Full color photographs. "Hello, Stranger-Friend" begins Maya Angelou's story about Thandi, a South African Ndebele girl, her mischievous brother, her beloved chicken, and the astonishing mural art produced by the women of her tribe.  With never-before-seen photographs of the very private Ndebele women and their paintings, this unique book shows the passing of traditions from parent to child and introduces young readers to a new culture through a new friend.  

From the Back Cover:

"A unique book that honors Africa by projecting images that are true and honors American children by giving them the very best." --School Library Journal (starred)
