1st ed.
An acclaimed picture book from Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award nominee Maya Angelou is now back in print in a gorgeous paperback edition. America's favorite poet joins a well-known photojournalist to tell the story of an eight-year-old Ndebele girl named Thandi, who lives in painted village in South Africa with her mother, her aunts, her mischievous younger brother, and her best friend, a chicken. Share the joys and challenges of growing up between two worlds--traditional African craft passed down from mother to daughter, and modern life found in the bright, colorful motifs of the murals and beadwork--and learn about a different culture through a new friend.
