Ali, Child of the Desert
Finally, Ali is old enough to accompany his father to market to sell their camels. As they journey through the Great Sahara of Morocco, suddenly, a sandstorm rises, and Ali is alone and lost. He finds a herdsman who takes him in for the night and tells a tale of brave warriors. Now, Ali has a big decision to make. Should he go with the herdsman and perhaps never see his father again? The illustrations in this book are dramatic and powerfully lit and evoke very powerful feelings as Ali finds his own courage.
