In pantomime spirit, children will long to tell Handa what's happening right behind her in this beautiful 25th anniversary edition of a modern classic. "So luscious it seems almost edible" Observer A 25th anniversary edition of a modern classic, this is the story of Handa who decides to take seven pieces of delicious fruit to her friend, Akeyo, who lives in the neighbouring village. But as Handa wonders, I wonder what fruit Akeyo will like best?, a series of sneaky animals steal something from Handa's basket, which she's carrying on her head... When Handa reaches Akeyo, will she have anything left to offer her friend? Brimming with mouth-watering fruit and wild animals, this richly-illustrated story is for the youngest of readers. Named one of the best culturally diverse picture books in the UK, this is a beautiful edition to share and treasure with a foreword and gorgeous gold foil on the cover and spine.
