About the Author

Mayonn Paasewe-Valchev was born in Liberia, where she was exposed to a culture of oral storytelling at a young age. She lived in the Netherlands for several years, where she learned to stuff her klompen (wooden shoes) with carrots and developed a love for reading stories--especially tales written by Roald Dahl and Astrid Lindgren. She lives in Georgia with her family.

Reviews

"A boy and his best friends embark on a pilgrimage that delivers bittersweet life lessons in a richly rendered, West African-inspired world. . . . Paasewe-Valchev's prose is captivating, smooth, and poetic in its delivery of this fresh and layered narrative. With well-timed, fluid pacing, this novel masterfully deals with themes of friendship, family, loss, and hope. Readers will be engrossed from start to finish. A beautifully rendered coming-of-age story." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
