When Hoopoes Go to Heaven, Paperback

When Hoopoes Go to Heaven Paperback



Ten-year-old Benedict is feeling happy. His family's new home in Swaziland has the most beautiful garden in the whole entire world, teeming with insects, frogs and his favourite cinnamon-coloured birds.

Here, crouched in the cool shade of the lucky-bean tree, it's easy to forget the loneliness that comes from his siblings playing without him, easy to stop himself fretting about how to fix his Mama's failing cake-baking business.

Of course, there are many things in Africa that cannot be put right by a boy who isn't yet big.

But in Benedict's wonder-filled world, even the ugliest situation has a certain magic.

Warm, funny and brimming with life, Where Hoopoes Go to Heaven paints a fresh and compelling picture of life in Swaziland that will capture your imagination and restore your faith in humanity.
