Publisher's Summary:
This unique series of photographic information books, told in the first person, accompanies children who have grown up away from their family's homeland, and are now visiting it for the first time. The unfamiliar food, clothing, and customs of another country are seen from a fresh, exciting perspective. With stunning photographs and a bright, child-friendly design, this informative, fun series is very relevant to today's world in which so many people have moved away from their original culture to live elsewhere. Ikenna goes to Nigeria. Ikenna is looking forward to lots of sun when he goes to Nigeria - even though he and his mum are going during the rainy season. In Lagos, he plays with his cousins before driving to Onitsha to see other relatives. Then the rain starts! But there is still lots to do including meeting Great-Uncle Hillary, who drove the royal train across Nigeria in 1956 and going with his mum to the Osun Festival at Osogbo, where he is surrounded by the colours and sounds of age-old ceremonies and traditions. Ikenna feels sad leaving his big family behind, but he's determined to visit Nigeria again - next time during the dry season!.
