Handa’s Surprise


Written and illustrated by Eileen Browne

For ages 3–7

A modern classic named one of the best culturally diverse picture books in the UK, this is the story of Handa, who’s part of the Luo tribe in south-west Kenya.

Handa decides to take seven pieces of delicious fruit to her friend, Akeyo, who lives in the neighbouring village. But as Handa wonders what fruit Akeyo will like best, a series of sneaky animals steal something from Handa’s basket, which she’s carrying on her head … will she have anything left to offer her friend?

Richly illustrated and brimming with luscious fruit and cheeky wild animals, children will long to tell Handa what’s happening right behind her!
