Review:

Young Mpengo has lived his life in his safe and beautiful village with his father, mother, his little sister, Ekila, and most recently, Baby Bula. He has friends in the village, and he gets to attend school. However, his whole world changes when his family moves to Hidden Village. First, they must travel down the dangerous river and then walk many miles. Then, they will need to set an example as Christians to help convert the villages, even though Mpengo’s grandfather is the village witch doctor! Will Mpengo’s faith and Christian values help him find a home in Hidden Village, or will he and his family remain outsiders?
