Additional Information

A vibrantly illustrated picture book celebrating creativity and serving your community, from celebrated French children's author Laura Nsafou and debut illustrator Amélie-Anne Calmo.

Between the deserts of Mali and the rivers of Mauritania is a song known only to Africa itself. It is a song that can be heard every day, so long as the wind isn't blowing too hard.

It is the song of the Luminaries, a group of women with powerful magic wearing long golden dresses. Fadya is the youngest of the Luminaries and on her journey, she will encounter and help two fishermen who have inadvertently awaken the wrath of the Goddess of the river.

Available in English for the first time, Fadya and the Song of the River is a wonderful journey inspired by traditional African tales, with bold artwork filled with movement that will delight young readers.

Laura Nsafou, also known as Mrs Roots, is an afrofeminist blogger and author. She reviews books from afro literature and writes articles about afrofeminism in France. Her different projects challenge antiblackness and seek for a fair representation of black women in French culture. Founder of the Afrolab workshop, Laura is also the author of several other children’s books, including the eleven-times reprinted picture book Comme un million de papillons noirs (Like A Million Black Butterflies).

Translated from French by Ros Schwartz.
