CATEGORY AND OVERALL WINNER OF THE SLA AWARDS

This book is British-Nigerian storyteller Atinuke's personal love letter to the African continent, and its 55 countries in all their variety. It 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 readers aged six and up, 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!

"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
