All Aboard for the Bobo Road

All aboard for the Bobo Road! Fatima and Galo load the luggage while their dad Big Ali drives the bus. Help count on bikes, sacks of rice, melons and even goats and chickens as the bus travels past Gurunsi houses, the hippo lake, waterfalls and jungle, all the way to Bobo. With the authentic setting in Burkina Faso drawn from the author's own experience, this is a wonderfully fun introduction for small children to an amazing culture.


"Corr's folk-style gouache paintings pulsate with energy, bright colors, and design patterns... A delightful introduction to a lively way of life."

"Unique... The numerous vibrant details make this a great choice not only as a counting primer but also for use as an introduction to Burkina Faso culture and geography."

"A vibrant counting journey through West Africa"
Fiona Noble - The Bookseller

"Full of authentic detail... A wonderful picture of West African rural culture."
The School Librarian

"This is a truly original picture book, and stands out from the crowd as being the brightest I have ever seen."
