The Lovereading4Kids comment
Winner of the Glen Dimplex Children's Book award 2006. Sophie is a wonderfully adventurous young girl who now lives with her father in a town in the Sahara desert. Her love of camels and a chance meeting with a young boy brings her into all manner of danger, fear and excitement all in one.
Stephen Davies has a real talent for inspiring young children through the mixing of fact and fiction in his writing. Kids will be bubbling over with excitement, for before they even realise it they'll know more about life in the Sahara having read the book and had a great deal of fun along the way with both Sophie, Gidaado and the albino camel. Further adventures with Sophie will be published in March 2007, entitled Sophie and the Locust Curse. Rest-assured we will be promoting that one too as we really rate this author.

Sophie And The Albino Camel by Stephen Davies
Sophie lives in Gorom-Gorom, with her carnivorous-plant obsessed dad. Despite living there for 2 years, she finds it difficult to make friends. So when she meets Gidaado, a young griot, she agrees to join him and his camel, on a journey to his village. It is not until they have set off, that she begins to realise, how dangerous the desert was.
