Reviews

* "Weaving African tribal language and lore . . . into a rich tapestry featuring a witty projection of the future, a score of vividly realized characters, and a nonstop adventure culminating in a denouement that's at once taut, comic, and touching, Farmer has created a splendidly imaginative fantasy." --KIRKUS, starred review
* "This tale overflows with wise insights, lessons and observations about the ties between heritage and family." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, starred review
* "In its fundamental suspense and appeal the book bears an odd but satisfying resemblance to The Wizard of Oz--witches, scarecrows, and all." --THE BULLETIN OF THE CENTER FOR CHILDREN'S BOOKS, starred review
