beschrijving

A beautifully illustrated, artistic children’s book featuring a mix of comics, an overarching storyline and background information.

This book is written for all children who love beautiful stories, and especially for children who have a special connection with Africa. Maybe because you have vacationed there, or you are curious about places that you are yet to discover. Or, perhaps because you want to know more about your culture or that of your (grand) parents or friends.
What makes this book unique are the beautiful drawings, and the combination of comics, an overarching storyline and background information. While the legends are discussed in the overarching storyline, in WikiTopia you will find background information that will make them come even more alive. That is why this book is perfect for anyone who wants to read more about Africa.
Balla and the Forest of Legends is the first part in The Chronicles of Ubuntopia series. Part two Balla and the Secret of the Source has been released.

over de schrijver(s)While working and travelling in Africa, Leontine van Hooft learnt about the African Ubuntu philosophy, meaning: I am, because We are. Great leaders like Nelson Mandela and Kofi Annan followed this philosophy. In addition to The Chronicles of Ubuntopia, Leontine has written several award-winning management books about Ubuntu.
The beautiful illustrations in this graphic novella were created by Jean-Claude Ngumire. He trained to become an illustrator in Rwanda. Through his knowledge of Africa and African cultures, he brings the legends to life in a way that only he can.

toelichtingIn the book Balla, the Griot, tells two stories from Africa that are hundreds and hundreds of years old in a modern and at the same time magical way. Stories about love, friendship, cleverness and leadership.

Books like this are rare. When books about Africa appear, they are usually about poverty, aid and conflict, and almost never about wealth, civilization and power. Moreover, they are certainly never about what Western countries can learn from Africa.
