Product description

Handa puts seven different fruits in a basket to take to her friend Akeyo. There’s a yummy guava, a tasty banana, an orange, a mango, a pineapple, an avocado and a passion fruit. But her walk takes her past lots of cheeky animals who have their eyes on the yummy fruit… and when Handa finally takes the basket off her head to present the fruits to Akeyo, she gets the biggest surprise of her life! Featuring children from the Luo tribe of South West Kenya, this funny and warm-hearted book perfectly captures the rhythms of Kenyan village life.

Also available: Read and Respond activities to accompany Handa’s Surprise.

“So luscious it seems almost edible.” The Observer

“Rich, hot colours and fluid brushstrokes zap each scene into life… Very effective.” The Independent on Sunday

    This is so funny. Handa has lots of fruit on her hat to take and walks past naughty animals who all pinch a piece of fruit! She gets there and has none left. It has lovely descriptions of her country and beautiful pictures.
