REVIEWS.

1. My debut 'Children of the Benin Kingdom' was reviewed in the Sept 2020 edition of children's online magazine BOOKS FOR KEEPS.

"This is a fast-paced adventure story of a resourceful and feisty young girl determined to find out where she came from and where she fits into society. It is also as much about friendship and loyalty and the bonds of family as a quest for identity. The book is rich in details of village life contrasted against the bustle and splendour of the forest city.

This would be an excellent read for schools and there a helpful factual section at the back of the book placing the story in context and giving more accurate historical details"
