Description

Niki Daly has won the Children's Literature Choice and Parents' Choice Silver Awards for her delightful stories. In Welcome to Zanzibar Road, Mama Jumbo the elephant walks down Zanzibar Road on a hot day in Africa. She decides this is the perfect place for her new home. There are plenty of new friends to meet, and all her neighbors pitch in to help her build her house. But who will she share it with? Maybe Little Chico will come live with her! "South African culture flows joyfully in the vibrant tale that's sure to be a hit ..." -School Library Journal

Professional reviews

"Who will help Mama Jumbo the elephant build her new house? Who will live in it with her? Juju the monkey is a big help, but Little Chico the chicken becomes the special someone. These friends and their adventures are amusing and child-friendly. Dunai Gurira sets a jaunty pace--from the moment Chico experiences his first bath to the moment of scary shadows from the prickly pear tree and the excitement of a neighborhood gathering in honor of his birthday. The voice of Mama Jumbo is warm and loving while Chico's is high pitched and impressionable. A lilting tone flavors this fine African tale, and a peek at Daly's illustrations would be a treat. A.R.
