As Handa and her friend Akeyo, young members of Kenya's Luo tribe, search for her grandmother's missing hen, Mondi, they find increasing numbers of interesting animals but the black hen eludes them. "This picture book throbs with sunshine. A stunning book." -- The Independent (U.K.) Every morning, Handa, a young girl from the Luo tribe, feeds breakfast to Mondi, her grandma's black hen. This morning, however, Mondi is nowhere to be seen. So Handa and her friend Akeyo set off on a hunt, coming upon two fluttery butterflies, three stripy mice, four little lizards, five beautiful sunbirds, and many more intriguing creatures. But where could Mondi be? Is that a faint cheeping they hear under the bush? Might Mondi have a surprise in store (or maybe even ten of them)? Luminous colors depict a lush natural setting in this gentle, repetitive story perfect for reading aloud.
