Anna Hibiscus: Racing Reads

By Atinuke
Illustrated by Lauren Tobia

A collection of four linked stories of family life set in modern west Africa.

Anna Hibiscus lives in amazing Africa with her mother, her father and lots and lots of her family. Join her as she splashes in the sea, prepares for a party, sells oranges, and hopes to see sweet, sweet snow!

  • The debut of a fresh, new storytelling voice.
  • Racing Reads are engaging first novels for the newly independent reader. Each book is extensively illustrated and the story-per-chapter structure is ideal for building reading confidence.
