Book Review


Big Ali is driving his minibus to Bobo Road, the most beautiful road in the world. His two children ride atop the bus and help all the passengers load their cargo. The bus drives by hippos, beautiful waterfalls, rock domes, a forest, and finally into the city. All the while, Ali's children help load bikes, food, luggage, and even animals onto the bus. When the passengers arrive in the city, they take their belongings to the market to sell them, and Ali surprises his children with a special present for all their hard work: a pot of rice, beans, and fried fish.
