Format: Paperback
Finally a book that puts children at the centre of the debate combining hard evidence with a warm hearted advocacy for children's right to a better life. It offers academic approaches including new data that can be used by researchers and people interested in African development as well as well written descriptions of children's life. It's easy to read, has a systematic list of literature and some wonderful photos. A good read with a mission.

Format: Paperback
This book is one of the most in-depth analysis of the practice of child labour in Africa I have read. Without resorting to a patronising and condemning tone - which is so frequently the case when Europeans write about Africa, this book seeks to both understand the practices and find solutions that are in tune with Africa herself. Also; the pictures are stunning. I got the book for those initially!
