A heart-warming story of friendship and dance for readers aged 8+
“The Parrot Street crew absolutely adored Efua Traore's debut Children of the Quicksands. Her books are contemporary, vibrant, exciting, plus they're packed with empathy and characters kids will love.”
Jomi’s mum left when he was little to make a new life for them in Lagos, the city of dreams. When Jomi doesn’t hear from her, he decides to follow. His only starting place is a TV dance competition that his mum used to love.
Things go badly for the boy and his pet bushbaby, until he meets a crew of street kids. Together, they come up with a one-chance idea to find Jomi’s mother – and make their own dreams come true.
Efua Traoré is a Nigerian-German author who write books, short stories and songs in English and German. She grew up in a small town in Nigeria where she had a never boring and adventurous childhood. For as long as she can remember, her head was filled with little stories, but it was not until much later that she began to write them down.
