Trotro Trio: Blast to the Past
Out of stock
Age Range: 7 – 12 years
TRAVEL AND SEE
When siblings Akosua and Kojo, along with their cousin Gifty, discover an antique medallion in a mysterious, abandoned trotro, they suddenly find themselves in an ancient West African kingdom that looks and feels oddly familiar.
The kids have no idea how they ended up in the past, they just know they need to get home before it’s too late.
Join the Trotro Trio on their first adventure as they travel back in time to the reign of King Agorkoli to witness and experience the daring Ewe escape from the walled city of Notsie.
