Synopsis

This is a beautiful, vibrant story, with rich colours and words that sing right off the page. This is the first picture book featuring Anna Hibiscus and she is very happy in it! So happy, in fact, that she can't quite decide what to do with herself!! So she turns to her grandparents, her aunties, her cousins Chocolate, Angel and Benz, her uncle Tunde and her father, who each offer her a way to express her boundless joy. But being around the people she loves so much only makes her happiness grow and grow; she is SO happy, she is going to EXPLODE! It is her mother who finally helps her to channel her brimming happiness. Sitting in her mango tree Anna sings an amazing song. Amazing is Africa. Amazing is Anna Hibiscus. Anna Hibiscus' world is brought to full colour for the first time in her very own picture book. This is a delightful story set against a bustling African city in the midst of a huge, happy family.
