Back home, it is a tradition that every child has a guardian to look after you. My guardian gave me this book when I was 13, but I was far too young to read it! So I made a special band for it and carried it around in my pocket. I took it to Cameroon with me. This is a book you can read at many times of your life. You can always go back and learn something new.”

Set in Ancient India.
