A fun book for children, exploring the differences between the British views of colonized Africa and the indigenous people A magical journey up Mount Kilimanjaro which is drenched in very serious coming of age overtones Ultimately the book is quite a simple read and uses lots of colourful imagery However the content displays a much serious note of subject matter enlightenment This book would be perfect for an able year 5 or less able year 6 class, I think it opens up a lot of opportunity for class discussion and would be best read aloud and explored as a group. this book left me deeply, deeply dissatified and sick Is the life of one white boy worth the lives of a full African tribe This was my favorite Campbell book Really fun and magical.
