Based on the much-loved book by Eileen Browne, travel to Kenya and follow in Handa’s footsteps as she journeys to see her best friend Akeyo, in the next village. Handa is taking 7 delicious fruits as a surprise, but 7 different animals have 7 very different ideas… could you resist the sweet-smelling guava?
