Kwajo and the Brassman's Secret - A Tale of Old Ashanti Wisdom and Gold
Title:
Kwajo and the Brassman's Secret - A Tale of Old Ashanti Wisdom and Gold
Asare, Meshack
$10.00

Kwajo's father makes traditional small figures. One day, he makes him a little brass drummer who comes alive and transforms Kwajo into a land of proverbs and riddles. It is a land where the figures represent money, and the people are citizens in a powerful kingdom. Kwajo is tempted by riches but must first decode a series of riddles and symbols. He falls at the last test, but nonetheless learns an important lesson.

The Brassman's Secret won The Noma Award for Publishing in Africa 1982. It has become one of the most important children's books in Africa, and has been translated into several foreign languages. This is a new edition appearing for the first time with full colour-illustrations.
