Kiisa lives in Rwendigo, Africa and has been sent to boarding school. She’s not sure why she has been sent there. When her father dropped her off, he told her that there was some special in there. She found a pile of black and white feathers, those of a wagtail. They turned into a little bird, whose name was Njili. She is one of the Messengers and had been sent to help Kiisa with the Rescue.
What is this rescue? How can Kiisa be brave enough? Will she be safe from the rebels?
About the Author- J.A. Myhre, MD currently serves in East Africa as a doctor with Serge. She is married and has four children. The first book in the The Rwendigo Tales series is A Chameleon, a Boy, and a Quest.
My thoughts- This was an interesting and well written book. I thought it was neat Myhre had written this series for her children. It must have been very special for them to receive a book like this.
A Bird, a Girl, and a Rescue was filled with action and adventure. This will be a perfect book for any child who likes learning about new cultures, action, adventure and yet, lives similar to their’s.
I enjoyed reading the glossary. (I wish it had been in the front, for easier access.) I also enjoy the acknowledgements, because I learned more about her children, the original audience, and the rebel killing in 1998 at Kichwamba Technical College.
I highly recommend this book for all juvenile readers. It would make an excellent present. Half of the royalties from the sales of this book help enable children receive an education.
As a parent though, I would recommend reading it first to make sure it is something you want your children to read.
