Synopsis

Synopsis

"In the best pantomime spirit, readers long to tell Handa what’s happening just behind her." – The Guardian (U.K.)

Handa puts seven delicious fruits in a basket to take to her friend, Akeyo. Which fruit will Akeyo like best, she wonders - the yellow banana, the sweet guava, the juicy orange, the ripe mango, the spiky pineapple, the creamy avocado, or the tangy passion fruit? As Handa makes the long walk to the next village, carrying the basket on her head, a monkey, ostrich, zebra, elephant, giraffe, antelope, and parrot steal her fruits, one by one. But little do they know that Handa has an even bigger surprise in store! Ideal for reading aloud, Handa’s Surprise is now available as a Big Book suited for sharing with groups of young children.
