Etabo dreams of being a camel racer. One day he might even beat his older brother when they race. But with the price of water rising, Etabo’s father must sell the camels, and his siblings must find work. What will Etabo do now? From acclaimed Kenyan filmmaker Wanuri Kahiu and Italian illustrator Manuela Adreani, this story of love and hope centers on the inspiring Turkana people of northwest Kenya. Told with gentleness and humor, it is a universal story about keeping one’s dreams alive.
Manuela Adreani has worked as a graphic artist and animator. In 2011 she embarked on a career as a freelance illustrator, working with Benchmark and Scholastic India. She illustrated the volumes Alice in Wonderland, Pinocchio, Snow White, and The Wizard of Oz for White Star Kids, and was one of the winners of the illustration contest organized for the 130th anniversary of the creation of Pinocchio.
