Africa, Amazing Africa

"A gorgeous walkthrough of all Africa's countries, celebrating the history, languages and culture of the continent." Guardian

"This beautifully produced atlas of Africa is a fantastic book for any home library or classroom." BookTrust, the UK's largest reading charity

"The tone and accompanying illustrations are lively and celebratory, redressing negative stereotypes and filling a gap in the market." The Bookseller

This lovely book gives you wonderful facts and information about every country in Africa. A lovely book to dip in and out of or to devour in one. A Cottage Noir favourite and one of our The Cornrow topsellers.

This book is British-Nigerian storyteller Atinuke's love letter to Africa: a carefully curated sample of the continent's 55 countries, in all their amazing diversity. Her beautifully-written, lively text reflects Africa's unique mix of the modern and the traditional, as she explores its geography, its peoples, its animals and its fascinating history. The book divides Africa into five sections: South, East, West, Central and North, each with its own introduction.

This is followed by a page per country, containing a delightful mix of friendly, informative text and colourful illustrations. With just a couple of facts per page, the book is perfectly geared toward seven year old readers, and imagined as a diving-off point: to inspire children to find out more about each and every country... So, welcome to Africa, Amazing Africa: the richest king, the tallest sand dunes and the biggest waterfall on the planet are all here, alongside drummers, cocoa growers, inventors, balancing stones, salt lakes, high-tech cities and nomads who use GPS!
