Synopsis

Where's Jamela? by Niki Daly

Mama and Gogo are tremendously excited about the new house they are moving to, but Jamela likes where they are and doesn't want to go. She starts putting her books and school things into a box, but eventually gives up, packs herself away and goes off to sleep. And just when the big truck is about to drive off, Mama suddenly shouts, Wait, wait! Where's Jamela? Mrs Zibi, Greasy Hands and even Christmas the chicken make an appearance in this delightful new African township story in which Jamela finally discovers that there's no place like home.

Among his many Frances Lincoln books, Once Upon a Time was an Honor Winner in the US Children's Africana Book Awards of 2004. Jamela's Dress - first in the Jamela series - was another milestone book, chosen by the ALA as a Notable Children's Book and by Booklist as one of the Top 10 African American Picture Books of 2000, and winning both the Children's Literature Choice Award and the Parent's Choice Silver Award.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
