Every Leaf a Hallelujah

Starlight Stage

An environmental fairytale for all ages, newly made for our times by the Booker Prize-winning author of The Famished Road. In the forest near Mangoshi’s village in Africa there grows a very special flower. Mangoshi knows that only this flower can save her mother’s life. It can save her village, too. All she has to do is find it. Ben Okri and illustrator Diana Ejaita have created a magical forest of beauty and colour from which the great baobab, the chief tree of the forest, invites readers into his branches to travel the world and see for themselves the perils of not listening to nature.
