Summary
Dreaming of being allowed to go out bird hunting like his older brother Mbachu, Little Oli, a boy in an African village, is amazed when his wish to be as big as the mountains and as strong as the wind comes true.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
"I want to be big. Big as a mountain and strong as the wind!" declares little Oli. Yet when he gets his wish, he finds that with great size and strength come big problems and big responsibilities. Master storyteller Tololwa M. Mollel has placed a traditional African motif within the framework of contemporary life in his native Tanzania to create an exciting tale with the comforting conclusion that maybe it's good to be little-sometimes.
