Etabo dreams of being a camel racer. 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? This story of love and hope centres on the inspiring Turkana people of north-west Kenya. Told with gentleness and humour, it is a universal story about keeping one’s dreams alive.

'A gift. A burst of dreamy and imaginative details. This is one stunning piece of work worth celebrating' – Brittle Paper 

'A captivating story about self-sacrifice, kinship, and the joys of the imagination. A story that will never lose its magic' – The Tiger Tales
