 I also enjoy the books and paintings of Meshack Asare who is busy to represent many African cultures in his works. His book "Sosu's Call" was the winner of the 1999 UNESCO First Prize for Children's and Young People's Literature in the Service of Tolerance. The book "The Brassman's Secret", which was translated into many languages won the Noma Award.

African children's books on the Frankfurt Book Fair 2012 On the Frankfurt Book Fair 2012 I was looking for African children's books for a school library in The Gambia. I enjoyed very much the books at Akoss Ofori-Mensah's stall from Sub-Saharan Publishers, Accra, Ghana: "Mimi Mystery" written by Michael Daniel Ambatchew (Ethiopia) and illustrated by Edmund Opare (Ghana) tells the story of Belayn a little girl with an angelic voice. She is banned by her mother from singing in public because it is taboo in her society for a respectable female to sing in public. The book was published in 2012. The book "The Blue Marble" published in 2005 is written by Jackee B. Bantanda (Uganda).

It was illustrated during an UNESCO workshop in 2004 in Namibia from different artists from Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Namibia and South Africa. The result is impressive. I really love the books about the girl Jamela from Niki Daly and the children at the school in The Gambia love them, too. That's why the books in the library were really torn when I visited the school last time and I had to buy new copies.
