The book takes us on a journey with Zahrah learning to accept her uniqueness and special qualities and undertaking a treacherous adventure to help her friend. The world is woven beautifully and there are so many magical touches. We have "rhythm beetles", who turn up whenever music is played to shake their butt, lightbulbs that grow in soil, flower petals used as currency, ladies wearing dresses made entirely of tiny mirrors, baboons that are artists, computers that are grown from seeds, it’s an incredibly imaginative book.
