Synopsis

Mbobo Tree by Glenda Millard

In the cleft of a rock, on the crest of a hill, grows a tree that belongs to no-one and to everyone. When a little baby girl is found swinging in the branches of the tree, the villagers name her Tiranamba Adesimbo Mbobo and love her as if she were their own. But Tiranamba never speaks a word. When the life-giving tree is threatened, Tiranamba finds her voice, and her bravery saves the village.

Reviews

A stunningly well-told story. An excellent book with brilliant illustrations that would make a really worthwhile contribution to the RE unit on the symbol on trees. Religious Education Primary News
