The Deliverer

The Deliverer received a Burt Award for African Literature 2010

“Drop the stone, young man!” he screamed.

Osei dropped the stone gently on the ground when he realised that the man had no arms and his garments were torn to shreds. He was a frightful sight to behold. With his chest still heaving up and down with rage he turned to find his friends standing around looking ashamed. “When you are born to kill an elephant, you don’t go bruising your knees chasing rats!” the strange man said.

The style used in The Deliverer is an interesting way of capturing history in fiction. Set in the Ashanti Kingdom, read about how a handicapped boy grows up to become a hero and the deliverer of his people. High in suspense and a page turner.

Tra-la-laaa! Captain Underpants is back in an all-new epic adventure that’s the zaniest, funniest, outrageousest, and time-travelingiest yet!

In this ninth epic novel, Dav Pilkey takes readers back in time to the carefree days of kindergarten, when the worst thing George and Harold had to face was not evil mad scientists or alien cafeteria ladies but a sixth-grade bully named Kipper Krupp, the nephew of their clueless school principal.

Hold on to your underpants; the Captain is back!

Ook and Gluk have a pretty awesome life growing up together in Caveland, Ohio, in 500,001 BC, even though they’re always getting in trouble with their nasty leader, Big Chief Goppernopper.
