Product Description:

Emmanuel was born with a deformed leg in Ghana Africa. He was a bright boy with a strong character and when his mother became sick, he made it to the city to work and send money home. Most handicapped people in Ghana have to beg for money; however, Emmanuel promised his mother he would not beg just before she died. He was on a mission to show others that he was capable, and in doing so, he inspired others (including politicians). He ends up riding a bicycle across Ghana! Written by Laurie Ann Thompson, illustrated by Sean Qualls, hc, 33pp, 9" x11.5". ~ Sara

Publisher Description:

Born in Ghana, West Africa, with one deformed leg, he was dismissed by most peoplebut not by his mother, who taught him to reach for his dreams. As a boy, Emmanuel hopped to school more than two miles each way, learned to play soccer, left home at age thirteen to provide for his family, and, eventually, became a cyclist. He rode an astonishing four hundred miles across Ghana in 2001, spreading his powerful message: disability is not inability. Today, Emmanuel continues to work on behalf of the disabled.

Thompson's lyrical prose and Qualls's bold collage illustrations offer a powerful celebration of triumphing over adversity.
