Reviews - What do customers think about Child of Dandelions?

A real page-turner  Sep 17, 2008
Child of Dandelions is a heart-rending story of Sabine - a teenager living in Uganda. Nanji's storytelling is pure and Sabine's (mis)adventure is full of the sights and sounds of Uganda in the 1970s when Idi Amin ordered the expulsion of some 80,000 Indians.
Nanji - a children's book author has made an impressive debut into the Young Adult genre with her new book!
Fantastic Storytelling!  Jun 24, 2008
Wow. Highly recommended. My grade 7 and 8 students were thoroughly engaged with this book. One of them was so inspired that she is visiting Africa this summer with her family.

A very rich story that illustrates a historical period that has been completely overlooked in the West. It is especially successful in touching issues of class, race and nationhood.

Despite the violence and chaos that this tragedy created, I love how Nanji tells the story without issuing judgment.

This book also helped my students understand life in Africa, which is something we don't come across much in our curriculum.

A must read.
