Product Overview

Nile Baby is an imaginatively daring story with a universal appeal, about two young friends - Alice Brass Khan and Arnie Binns, both twelve, both pre-teen misfits - who discover a ninety-year-old foetus specimen in the laboratory storeroom of their school and set out on two very different journeys to return it to its rightful home. Their journeys lead them to discover not only their absent fathers but also other buried and surprising roots. Close to the River Thames and not far from Heathrow Airport, the two friends reunite to find at the end of their adventure that their foetus-creature will finally insist on its own manner of leaving them.
With its resonances of Conrad and Achebe, Nile Baby will appeal to all readers and students of African fiction, and all those interested in representations of Africa both at home and abroad.
