This is a moving and beautifully researched story about camels, lost princesses and the strength of wisdom and knowledge, stunningly illustrated by P.J. Lynch. This is the second tale in a trilogy from acclaimed storytellers Mal Peet and Elspeth Graham. This one begins with a disgruntled camel, desperately trying to protect a little baby from a violent desert storm whipping up all around him. He is rescued by Issa - the desert guide - who takes the child in, naming her Mariama. She becomes Issa's family and, as he begins to lose his sight, his eyes. Many years later, a mysterious stranger arrives at their doorstep, a stranger who will change both their lives for ever...This is an another mesmerizing tale from the creators of the award-winning Cloud Tea Monkeys. It is a beautiful and touching tale, illustrating the bond between a child and the man who brought her up like a daughter. It is both deliciously exotic and yet portraying warmly familiar and universal truths.
