Delighful children's book ... The Golden Compass
If you read about the goat wedding (see below) then you know that there are a bunch of nine year old girls here in Ouagadougou... They all seem to be big readers; Elliot was loaned the Golden Compass... which Leslie and I promptly read, the back cover was very intriguing, and quite rightly so... a delightful book for children 8 and up and adults too (who can read it in about 4 enjoyable hours). The imagery is quite unforgettable.
