The Lovereading4Kids comment
A really exciting adventure story set in Africa that will grip you from first page to last featuring a brave girl called Sophie and her albino camel Chobbal. Experience camel racing and a terrifying army of locusts - more of them than you can possibly imagine. Great stuff.
Sophie and the Locust Curse by Stephen Davies
Sophie and Gidaado are back and this time the enemy is more dangerous than camel thief Moussa ag Litni who featured in Sophie's first adventure, Sophie and the Albino Camel [link]. Locusts with their crop-devouring mandibles threaten the livelihood of the entire Oudalan Province. Gidaado is forced to become a crier announcing local news and the descriptions of missing cows. With Sophie's help, Gidaado's announcements become great hits! Who could resist Gidaado's crooning "Has anybody seen my Skinny Legs?"
Another African adventure with the stars of the first book in the series: 'An exceptional short novel' - Times Educational Supplement
