Meshack Asare, children's author from Ghana

Two very nice books (Meliga's Day and Kwajo and the Brassman's Secret) from the prolific Ghanaian children's author... excellent illustrations and stories guaranteed to appeal to a village reader. The problem? Go to to ask how much these cost? Here is what you get:

Meliga's Day (Opon Ifa Series, 2) by Meshack Asare (Paperback - April 2000)
2 Used & new from $88.12
Yes, most of his books- ordinary children's paperbacks- are selling in the used market for $20, 30, 40, 50, even $88.12 dollars! Incredible. The books can, though, be ordered from Michigan University Press and the African Books Collective.
